In May 1890, just before his departure from the asylum in Saint-Rémy, Vincent van Gogh (Dutch, 1853–1890) painted an exceptional group of four floral still lifes, to which the Museum’s Irises
(and also Roses
) belong. Striking in their facility of execution and elegant simplicity of design, these lush bouquets and their two counterparts were conceived as a decorative ensemble, like the suite of sunflowers he had made earlier in Arles. Our luxurious shawl features a detail adapted from Irises
Wool/Silk/Viscose. Imported. 80'' x 20''.
