Arts Everyday Living: Van Gogh in Autumn–Repeating A Vision of the Earth & Sun

Vincent van Gogh, The Sower, 1888, oil on canvas, Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam, Netherlands

I’m working on another sower.  Immense yellow disc for the sun.  Green-yellow sky with pink clouds.  The field is violet and the tree Prussian Blue.  No 30 canvas.

Vincent to brother Theo, Letter, around November 20, 1888

Does this version of Van Gogh’s The Sower correspond to the description in his letter above. Or is he referring to another interpretation of this theme below?
