Our enchanting watch features a detail adapted from Irises
(1890) by Vincent van Gogh (Dutch, 1853–1890). In May 1890, just before his departure from the asylum in Saint-Rémy, Van Gogh painted an exceptional group of four still lifes, to which the Museum’s Irises
belongs. Magnificent in their ease of execution and graceful simplicity of design, these bouquets were imagined as a decorative ensemble, like the suite of sunflowers he had made earlier in Arles.
