Inspired by the work of Jean-François Millet and others working in the ‘peasant’ genre, Van Gogh became interested in representing peasant life in his art. To depict the essence and spirit of their life, he for a time lived as they lived, he was in the fields as they were, enduring the weather for long hours as they were.
