|"A Wheatfield, with Cypresses" (1889), Vincent van Gogh|
The "living wall" is a reproduction of Vincent van Gogh’s masterpiece A Wheatfield, with Cypresses, and is situated on the western side of the National Gallery in Trafalgar Square. Over 8,000 plants of more than 26 different varieties were used to recreate the piece.
The live painting will be grown throughout the summer and autumn, remaining on public view until the end of October 2011.
A Wheatfield, with Cypresses was painted in September 1889, when Van Gogh was in the St-Rémy mental asylum, where he was a patient from May 1889 until May 1890.
