“Green Wheat Fields, Auvers,” by van Gogh, from 1890, donated to the National Gallery of Art.

“In his letters, van Gogh talks about being absorbed in a sea of windy grass,” said Mary Morton, the gallery’s curator of French paintings. Within weeks after painting “Green Wheat Fields, Auvers,” van Gogh killed himself, yet the paintings he left from those last few months, Ms. Morton said, are “classic, great and super vibrant.”
