Vincent van Gogh (Dutch, 1853–1890) began painting his celebrated Irises
during his stay at the asylum in Saint-Rémy in 1889. Because Van Gogh was initially confined to the grounds of the hospital, he worked from nature found in the asylum's garden. Each iris in the painting is unique in its movement and shape to create a variety of curved silhouettes. The design of our Van Gogh Irises Note Cube with Drawer is based on details from Irises
Contains 500 sheets of loose paper with hole for pencil and 50 colored paper clips. Paperboard tray. 4 1/8'' x 3 1/4''.

Art HistoryVincent van Gogh (Dutch, 1853–1890), the eldest son of a Dutch Reformed minister and a bookseller’s daughter, pursued various vocations, including that of an art dealer and clergyman, before deciding to become an artist at the age of 27. Over the course of his decade-long career (1880–90), Vincent van Gogh produced nearly 900 paintings and more than 1,100 works on paper. In 1890, he modestly assessed his artistic legacy as “of very secondary importance.”
