Vincent Van Gogh Irises 1889 – Artisoo.com..

Irises was one of the first paintings Van Gogh did while he was at the asylum at Saint-Remy in the last year before his death in 1890. This painting was influenced by Japanese prints, like many of his works. Theo, Van Gogh’s brother loved the painting and commented: “It strikes the eye from afar. The Irises are a beautiful study full of air and life.”
