In The Sower at Sunset, Vincent van Gogh returned to a motif that he had tackled several times since his move to Arles, in the south of France, in 1888. In contrast to earlier versions, the composition of the painting in the Bührle Collection draws the eye firmly to the figure of the sower. His silhouette is balanced by an almost equally dark tree trunk on the right, cropped at the top and bottom of the picture. Both are seen directly against the light of the setting sun, which, vastly enlarged as it nears the horizon, glows like a halo behind the sower’s bowed head. The level fields and the sky are saturated with colour, predominantly hues of green and violet.
Our gravure rework is made of a handmade plate with Sower painting and then printed with gravure etching technology using a high-pressure printing press of aluminum foil and a sheet of paper. This takes this masterpiece on new levels of stunning when viewed in-person.
