Roses_1993.400.5

Our Inspiration:Roses

Vincent van Gogh (Dutch, 1853–1890)
Oil on canvas, 36 5/8 x 29 1/8 in., 1890
The Walter H. and Leonore Annenberg Collection,
Gift of Walter H. and Leonore Annenberg, 1993,
Bequest of Walter H. Annenberg, 2002   1993.400.5

On the eve of his departure from the asylum in Saint-Rémy in May 1890, Van Gogh painted an exceptional group of four still lifes, to which both The Met’s Roses and Irises belong. These bouquets and their counterparts were conceived as a series or ensemble. Traces of pink along the tabletop and rose petals in the present painting, which have faded over time, offer a faint reminder of the formerly more vivid “canvas of pink roses against a yellow-green background in a green vase.”
