Van Gogh: Of Wheat Fields and Clouded Skies focuses on the transformation of Van Gogh's works from his early sketches of peasants and farmers; to his final paintings splashed with rich colours and vibrant brushstrokes.

As evident in 2017's Van Gogh and the Season's exhibition at the National Gallery Victoria, was his ability to recognise different cloud types and reproduce those, which drastically altered lighting, colour, and shadows in his artwork.

Seeing Van Gogh's early sketches, hints at the figures and shapes that would later follow in his paintings, and for any budding artist, is an inspiration to see the transformation from dark, moody sketches, to bright, lively landscapes now adored by millions.

In his lifetime, Vincent Van Gogh also sent hundreds of letters to his brother Theo, which provides the foundation for knowing who Vincent was, and his obsessive passion for producing art.
