Iris_58.187

Our Inspiration:Irises

Vincent van Gogh (Dutch, 1853–1890)
Oil on canvas, 29 x 36 1/4 in., 1890
Gift of Adele R. Levy, 1958   58.187

In May 1890, just before he checked himself out of the asylum at Saint-Rémy, Van Gogh painted four exuberant bouquets of spring flowers, the only still lifes of any ambition he had undertaken during his yearlong stay: two of irises and two of roses, in contrasting color schemes and formats. In the Museum’s Irises he sought a “harmonious and soft” effect by placing the “violet” flowers against a “pink background,” which have since faded owing to his use of fugitive red pigments.
