Iris

Iris by Van Gogh is one of the most famous works of the painter's very rich production. These colourful flowers help him to break the depressing routine of the asylum in the psychiatric hospital of Saint-Rémy-de-Provence. They also represent his mental state, which he describes to his brother Theo, sending him sketches of the Irises. In 1987 Iris becomes the most expensive painting ever sold, marking an unbeaten record for two and a half years.

Iris by Van Gogh is one of the most famous works of the painter's very rich production. It is located at the J. Paul Getty Museum, in Los Angeles, USA. It is dated around 1889, the year before the artist's death. It is important to understand in which context of his life he creates this masterpiece. Van Gogh has recently quarrelled with his old friend Gauguin and he has later cut off his ear. The people who live next to him begin to be afraid of the artist himself, who soon realizes that he really needs help: he is having a nervous breakdown and cannot bear the last heavy events of his life and so he decides to go to the psychiatric hospital of Saint-Rémy-de-Provence. In this initially sad place, Vincent finds a refuge in painting, a life partner and in fact in this same place he produces countless series of paintings. This place is surrounded by nature: trees, flowers and plants are the protagonists of his works, like the Irises. These colourful flowers help him to break the depressing routine of the asylum; they also represent his mental state, which he describes to his brother Theo, sending him sketches of the Irises. This picture is painted with undefined and subtle contours, which is unusual for Van Gogh and the point of view is very close: it is due to the strong influence of Japanese art, which the European artists of that time are very fond of. In 1987 Iris becomes the most expensive painting ever sold, marking an unbeaten record for two and a half years.
