Irises - Vincent Van Gogh

Recently committed to the asylum of the monastery of Saint-Paul de Mausole in Saint-Rémy-de-Provence (May 1889), Vincent Van Gogh chose to paint the flowering irises planted in the institution's garden. He explained that this painting represented the lightning rod for his illness, because he felt that he could avoid going mad by continuing to paint. Color is here the element of freedom for the painter. His subjectivity mixes with reality in order to accentuate the contrasts and to create a pictorial space of intense luminosity.

The artwork in a nutshell

Recently committed to the asylum of the monastery of Saint-Paul de Mausole in Saint-Rémy-de-Provence (May 1889), Vincent Van Gogh chose to paint the flowering irises planted in the institution's garden. He explained that this painting represented the lightning rod for his illness, because he felt that he could avoid going mad by continuing to paint. Color is here the element of freedom for the painter. His subjectivity mixes with reality in order to accentuate the contrasts and to create a pictorial space of intense luminosity.

The artist

Born on March 30, 1853, in Groot-Zundert in Holland, Vincent Van Gogh was initially destined for a religious life. At the age of 27, after an intense phase of depression, he decided to devote himself solely to painting. The people he met and the places where he lived influenced his artistic movements: post-impressionism, expressionism and fauvism. He left for Paris to join his brother, where he met Toulouse-Lautrec, Pissarro and Gauguin. In 1886, he moved to Arles and set up a studio with his friend Gauguin. A violent argument with Gauguin led him to cut off his ear. Aware of his bouts of madness, he consented to internment in 1889 in a religious asylum in Saint-Rémi de Provence. Two months after his release, he committed suicide in 1890 in Auvers-Sur-Oise.
