The most Famous Series of Paintings
Van Gogh’s Sunflowers series
is known throughout the world. The famous paintings are actually his second series on the subject, he initially worked on a series in Paris
, though they were mostly studies of cut and trimmed sunflowers. Then in 1888 came his Arles
Sunflowers, four paintings that shook up the world (only years later of course), and redefined what a still life
could look and feel like.
This famous series was undertaken for purely decorative reasons: Van Gogh wanted to give his new residence, the Yellow House
in Arles, a homely feeling and prepare it for the visit of his friend, and artist, Paul Gauguin
. His aim was to fill the walls with sunflower studies. There is evidence in his letters that he also planned at some later date to do a series of twelve more works.
Gauguin was very interested in owning one of the Sunflower paintings
, remarking when he first laid on it, it is ‘completely Vincent.’ Van Gogh was reluctant to part with it, and became worried he may lose them at some point so he set about replicating two of the originals. In true Vincent van Gogh fashion, the repetitions are not perfect copies, and become their own works of art.
Current value of Still Life: Vase with twelve Sunflowers
It is impossible to give the work an accurate price tag today, though it could easily be worth over $300 million if it was ever sold.
