About Sunflowers
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.

Van Gogh
Van Gogh was a master painter who strongly influenced the abstract and Neo-expressionist who came after him. Originating from the Netherlands, he discovered Impressionist art while living in Paris and started to use the color and light. His work is well known for its beauty, emotion, and color, as well as its interesting viewpoints of mundane objects. Despite being extremely poor and generally unknown throughout his lifetime, Van Gogh is now one of the greatest Dutch painters.  He lived a life with emotional tension and madness, and he created his finest piece, Starry Night, inside an institution. Although the specter of mental illness haunted him throughout his adult life and created a habit of inflicting self-harm (such as the infamous severed ear), his work remained a testament to his genius. Van Gogh died at the age of only 37, due to a self-inflicted gunshot wound. His brother Theo would go on to distribute his work and cultivate his popularity.
