“Irises”. Vincent van Gogh. 1889.

This stunning Duille fine art print features ‘Irises’ by renowned Dutch artist Vincent van Gogh.

‘Irises’ was made shortly after van Gogh began living at the asylum of Saint Paul-de-Mausole in Saint-Rémy-de-Provence in 1889. Painted at one of the most troubled times of his life this work shows the intense appreciation of beauty he found in the garden there.

Theo Van Gogh, his brother, exhibited ‘Irises in September 1889 and wrote of it “The Irises are a beautiful study full of air and life.” The painting’s original owner was Vincent’s friend Père Tanguy who was himself painted by the artist three times.

About the work
It’s a beautiful work to display in your home and enjoy; a museum-quality archival print made using materials which will last for many years.

The angle of view suggests that van Gogh was probably seated on the ground while painting these irises. We can visualise him sitting in the sunshine gazing intensely at the flowers as he worked. The inclusion of a group of marigold flowers in the rear of the painting heightens the blue-violet of the foreground and the smooth iris stems are contrasted with the texture of the flowers and the earth.

In its composition, handling of light and colour ’Irises’ shows the influence of Japanese woodblock prints on van Gogh’s art. Each iris is unique; a careful study of their shapes and movements have rendered a canvas bursting with variety of curved silhouettes defined by waving, twisting and curling lines.

In the late twentieth century the fame of this work was amplified by record-setting sale values.

Regardless of the headlines ‘Irises’ allows us to understand something of the soul of the artist who created it.
