Vase with Gladioli and Chinese Asters


Vase with Gladioli and Chinese Asters

Paris, August-September 1886

46.5 cm x 38.4 cm

This is one of more than 35 flower still lifes that Van Gogh painted in Paris in the summer of 1886. He hoped that paintings of flowers would sell well. These were also exercises in the use of colour and a loose style of painting.

In this still life, he worked with strong colour contrasts in complementary colours, placing green and red side by side, or blue and orange. Pairs like these form the basis of the colour theory of Eugène Delacroix (1798-1863), an artist Van Gogh greatly admired.

Vase with Chinese Asters and Gladioli


Vase with Chinese Asters and Gladioli

Paris, August-September 1886

61.1 cm x 46.1 cm

Van Gogh had always used generous amounts of paint. But after discovering the flower still lifes of Adolphe Monticelli (1824-1886) in June 1886, he went one step further. That French artist painted colourful bouquets with thick paint and emphatic brushstrokes. Van Gogh compared them to liquid clay. In still lifes such as Vase with Chinese Asters and Gladioli, you can see how thickly he began applying the paint to the canvas in his own flowers.

The vase shown here has been preserved and is now in the Van Gogh Museum collection. It is smaller in reality than in the painting. The large bouquet of flowers shown here would never fit inside it.

Irises


Irises

Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, May 1890

92.7 cm x 73.9 cm

Van Gogh painted this still life in the psychiatric hospital in Saint-Rémy. For him, the painting was mainly a study in colour. He set out to achieve a powerful colour contrast. By placing the purple flowers against a yellow background, he made the decorative forms stand out even more strongly. The irises were originally purple. But as the red pigment has faded, they have turned blue. Van Gogh made two paintings of this bouquet. In the other still life, he contrasted purple and pink with green.

Butterflies and Poppies


Butterflies and Poppies

Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, May-June 1889

35 cm x 25.5 cm

When Van Gogh made this painting he started with the flowers and butterflies and filled in the blue background only afterwards. This is clear from the fact that the broad strokes of blue paint occasionally cover the green stems of the flowers. Van Gogh even left part of the canvas unpainted, with the bare cloth visible.

Using various shades of green, he gave depth to the tangle of stems, leaves and petals. Van Gogh skillfully captured the spirit of the delicate poppies. Some of the buds are about to burst open.

Almond Blossom


Almond Blossom

Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, February 1890

73.3 cm x 92.4 cm

Large blossom branches like this against a blue sky were one of Van Gogh’s favourite subjects. Almond trees flower early in the spring making them a symbol of new life. Van Gogh borrowed the subject, the bold outlines and the positioning of the tree in the picture plane from Japanese printmaking.

The painting was a gift for his brother Theo and sister-in-law Jo, who just had a baby son, Vincent Willem.

Vase of Flowers


Vase of Flowers

Auvers-sur-Oise, June 1890

42.2 cm x 29.0 cm

This flower still life is not unfinished, even if it looks that way. Van Gogh painted it with loose and clearly rapid brushstrokes, as he was increasingly doing since he went to live in Auvers. He made the flowers only just recognisable and surrounded them with fairly rough blue outlines.

He painted the bunch of flowers in the home of his doctor, Paul-Ferdinand Gachet (1828-1909), whom he described as ‘a ready-made friend and something like a new brother’. We even know that he painted it at Gachet’s red table, on which the vase is standing in the picture.

Sunflowers


Sunflowers

Arles, January 1889

95 cm x 73 cm

Van Gogh’s paintings of Sunflowers are among his most famous. He did them in Arles, in the south of France, in 1888 and 1889. Vincent painted a total of five large canvases with sunflowers in a vase, with three shades of yellow ‘and nothing else’. In this way, he demonstrated that it was possible to create an image with numerous variations of a single colour, without any loss of eloquence.

The sunflower paintings had a special significance for Van Gogh: they communicated ‘gratitude’, he wrote. He hung the first two in the room of his friend, the painter Paul Gauguin, who came to live with him for a while in the Yellow House. Gauguin was impressed by the sunflowers, which he thought were ‘completely Vincent’.

Daubigny's Garden


Daubigny's Garden

Auvers-sur-Oise, June 1890

51 cm x 51.2 cm

Van Gogh was a lifelong admirer of the work of Charles-François Daubigny. This celebrated landscape painter had lived in Auvers. So when Vincent arrived in the village, he went to see Daubigny's home and garden as soon as he could. This is Van Gogh's first painting of the garden. He later made two larger ones on canvas.
