Sunflowers - Description

Vincent van Gogh's sunflower paintings are some of his most beloved works. They are often imitated by other painters, but none have been able to capture the intensity of color and line of the originals. There are two paintings in this series: one is signed and one is not. They vary in the thickness of the paint applied, the placement of the petals on the flowers, and the color of the background and the table upon which the vase is resting. The bright and vibrant color of yellow in these paintings came about as a result of innovations in manufactured paint in the 19th century. These bright yellows were new to the market, and proved irresistible to van Gogh. These paintings represent a departure in the still-life painting format. Previous still-life paintings showed flowers in a stiff, arranged format. Vincent van Gogh's paintings represent a more realistic showing of flowers in the process of blooming, wilting and fading, allowing him to express the entire cycle of life, with all its chaos, within the paintings. Vincent van Gogh originally created these paintings to hang in his guest house, where Paul Gauguin was to stay while on a visit. Vincent van Gogh wrote to his brother, saying: "It is a kind of painting that rather changes in character, and takes on a richness the longer you look at it. Besides, you know, Gauguin likes them extraordinarily. He said to me among other things - 'That...it's...the flower.' You know that the peony is Jeannin's, the hollyhock belongs to Quost, but the sunflower is somewhat my own." (source http://www.webexhibits.org/vangogh/letter/19/573.htm)
