The Harvest

This work was created in 1889 and is now kept in London, at the Courtauld Gallery. “The Haystacks” by Gaugin is a representation of the Breton rural world: some harvesters are at work in the fields, while a man is pulling two oxen. Gauguin draws the outlines of the figures using Prussian blue: the colour assumes a strong decorative value and becomes a means to give greater prominence to the subjects.

This work was created in 1889 and is now kept in London, at the Courtauld Gallery. “The Haystacks” by Gaugin is a representation of the Breton rural world: some harvesters are at work in the fields, while a man is pulling two oxen. The women are dressed in typical peasant clothing: long, modest-looking dresses covered with aprons, a veil over their heads and bare feet. Even the man in the foreground has a humble air: a hat on his head, a curved back, comfortable shoes and a whip in his hand. The colour and the brushstrokes immediately catch the eye and become absolute protagonists of this painting, in which there is no perspective in the traditional sense of the term. Gauguin draws the outlines of the figures using Prussian blue: the colour assumes a strong decorative value and becomes a means to give greater prominence to the subjects. In the work there is a strong dynamism: the diagonal placement of the animals seems to anticipate their subsequent movement, just as the disposition of the women suggests a continuity in their gestures. Despite the art of Gauguin was never fully understood by critics, who considered it too "primitive" and enigmatic, many colleagues took inspiration and a cue from his innovative works. Primarily Vincent Van Gogh, with whom the painter embraced a deep and tormented friendship, considered him a genius of painting, with an artistic potential above any other artist.
