Dutch painter Vincent van Gogh painted two series of still lifes depicting sunflowers. The one depicted here shows a bouquet of sunflowers in a vase and is from the second set he made in Arles.
These were intended to welcome and to impress Paul Gauguin and be part of Van Gogh’s guestroom in his home in Arles, where Gauguin was supposed to stay.
One often overlooked fact about these paintings is that the flowers are not in bloom. On the contrary, they are wilting.
About Vincent van Gogh
Vincent van Gogh (born March 30, 1853, Zundert, Netherlands—died July 29, 1890, Auvers-sur-Oise, near Paris, France) was a Dutch post-impressionist painter who posthumously became one of the most famous and influential figures in the history of Western art.
In a decade, he created about 2,100 artworks, including around 860 oil paintings, most of which date from the last two years of his life. They include landscapes, still lifes, portraits and self-portraits, and are characterized by bold colors and dramatic, impulsive and expressive brushwork that contributed to the foundations of modern art. He was not commercially successful, and his death at 37 came after years of mental illness, depression and poverty.
