About This Series

In 2013 the National Gallery invited Peter Layton to select a painting from their collection to interpret in glass. Peter was particularly inspired by the skies in many paintings and eventually chose ‘Wheatfield with Cypresses’ by Vincent Van Gogh. It took months of experimenting with different kinds of dramatic skies and different ways of portraying the wheatfield in the foreground, and eventually Peter and the team combined two separately blown elements to achieve the desired effect. The pieces have been very well received in both our gallery and in the National Gallery shop.

About This Piece

This magnificent stoneform is one of the finest examples of Peter’s Wheatfield series. The pattern is absolutely spellbinding! Both faces of this stunning piece contain very different pictorial narratives, allowing it to be viewed for either side with equal pleasure. The techniques employed in creating Wheatfield are beyond challenging. The various types of coloured glass needed to create the pattern are extremely expensive to acquire. We literally spared no expense in the pursuit of Wheatfield and this remarkable piece represents the very highest standard this collection has to offer.

Weight 3.5 kg
