Sunflowers oil paintings by Vincent van Gogh reproductions

The Sunflower series by Van Gogh has two different sets of paintings - the first series was created in Paris during 1887 and the second was done in 1889, during his stay in Arles. The Paris series of paintings depicted flowers lying on the ground while the Arles series captured bouquet of flowers in a vase. Van Gogh created both sets for his artist friend Paul Gauguin, who also took two of his Paris versions. One of the Arles version was created by Van Gogh when Gauguin came down to meet him. In a letter to his brother Theo, Van Gogh revealed that Gauguin wanted the third Arles version as well, but furious over the request; Van Gogh ended up not giving him the third painting.

Sunflowers Series

The Paris sunflowers series consists of four marvellous paintings, out of which one showcases a set of four wilted cut flowers on the ground while the rest have two flowers each. These paintings are very different from the Arles sunflowers. The beauty of these paintings lies in the fact that, though the flowers are wilted they were still full of life. The use rhythmic brush strokes from the centre of the flowers towards the outer circle, makes it look rather flat than three dimensional. The colour application in this series clearly states the inner tension of the artist.

On the other hand, the Arles series consists of seven breath-taking paintings of blooming sunflowers in a vase that were created for the purpose of decorating his studio. Van Gogh wanted to capture the essence of a stained glass window while painting these. He used three different shades of yellow clearly showing that it’s possible to create variations of single colours without having to lose eloquence.

The use of thick stabbing brushstrokes make the blooming flowers take on a life of their own. Van Gogh also creatively magnified the energy of the blossoms by cramping them tightly into the viewer’s space.
