Irises Replica on Canvas

Van Gogh Studio is based in Amsterdam, nearby the Van Gogh Museum where we continue to study the original works. Our paintings are all hand painted mainly by Dutch artists starting out on their own individual careers. They have studied the technique of Van Gogh, including brush strokes, colour mixing, ambience and rhythm of application. We are sure you will love your reproduced Van Gogh work, but if there is anything less than 100% satisfaction, we offer a full money back guarantee.

Just a Study

Irises was one of the first paintings he produced on arriving at the asylum in Saint-Remy, France. He worked from nature in the asylum’s garden, and it is believed the final Irises was just a study, as no other drawings were ever discovered for the piece. When Theo saw it he remarked: ‘[It] strikes the eye from afar. It is a beautiful study full of air and life.’

The First Owner of the Irises

The first owner of Irises was Julien ‘Pere’ Tanguy, a paint grinder who also sold art supplies and was an art dealer who first met Van Gogh during his own portrait sessions. Three paintings were produced of Mr. Tanguy: Portrait of Pere Tanguy, Winter, and two others titled, Portrait of Pere Tanguy. He soon sold it to art critic Octave Mirbeau, one of Van Gogh’s earliest supporters, for 300 francs.

Current value of the Irises; Breaking Art Auction Records

In 1987, Irises sold at an auction at Sotheby’s in New York for $53.9 million, the most expensive price ever for an artwork at that time. Sidney James, who was the dean of the art dealers, and 91 years old at the time, remarked: 'I never thought I'd live to see a painting sell for such a price. I wonder if there is any painting in the world that would sell for more.'
