This is the exquisite Vase with Irises by Vincent Van Gogh, the renown and expressive Impressionist painter. Van Gogh's dramatic sensitivity and inspired artistic freedom far surpassed most of his contemporaries. However, his exalted talent did not spare this devout artist from suffering mental despair and a suppressed form of epilepsy. Before tragically ending his own life, Van Gogh's penetrating vision produced moving portraits, symbolic landscapes, and revelatory still-lifes that unravel the great mysteries hiding beneath surface appearances.
Vase with Irises entices the viewer's eyes with an opulent tapestry of golds and blue-violets. The verve of the Van Gogh's signature style is forcefully brought to our attention in this extraordinary piece, perhaps explaining its enduring popularity. This universally acclaimed picture is housed in the Vincent Van Gogh Museum located in Amsterdam. Our team of European trained artists has translated this elegant and eloquent masterpiece into an oversized chart, so that you, the stitching enthusiast, can recreate this painting with equal poetry.
