Our Inspiration:Bouquet of Flowers in a Vase

Vincent van Gogh (Dutch, 1853–1890)
Oil on canvas, 25 5/8 x 21 1/4 in., 1890
The Walter H. and Leonore Annenberg Collection,
Gift of Walter H. and Leonore Annenberg, 1993,
Bequest of Walter H. Annenberg, 2002   1993.400.4

This still life is not mentioned in Van Gogh’s letters and has puzzled scholars as to its place in his artistic production. The subject enjoys a certain rapport with the mixed bouquets of summer flowers he made in Paris; the quasi-abstract floral wallpaper design in La Berceuse (1889), and the white porcelain vase in Irises (1890), both in The Met collection. However, the palette and style of this painting—especially its distinctive blues and ochers and graphic brick-shape hatchings—link it firmly with the landscapes made just prior to his death in Auvers on July 29, 1890.
