Flowers In A Blue Vase by Van Gogh

26 Sep

Todays painting in the continuing Van Gough Series is Flowers in a Blue Vase.

This was painted in June 1887 and at the time Van Gogh was becoming more interested in Natural things and in particular Flowers

“He is a painter , he will remain a painter; whether he, still young, translates Holland into the dark, whether he, alittle bit older. paints Montmartre and its gardens as a Divisionist or whether he paints ( the south or Auvers-sur-Oise) with a furious application of colour . Whether he loses himself in colour spots or deformation. he will remain a painter for ever and ever”

Emile Barnard
