Still Life: Vase with Fourteen Sunflowers – (Vincent Van Gogh) Previous Next


Artist:

Topic: Flowers Vase Life

Date: 1889

Size: 95 x 73 cm

Museum: National Gallery (London, United Kingdom)

Technique: Oil On Canvas

The first version differs in size, is painted on a size 20 canvas—not on a size 15 canvas as indicated—and all the others differ in the number of flowers depicted from Van Gogh's announcement. The second was evidently enlarged and the initial composition altered by insertion of the two flowers lying in the foreground, center and right] Neither the third nor the fourth shows the dozen or 14 flowers indicated by the artist, but more—fifteen or sixteen. These alterations are executed wet-in-wet and therefore considered genuine rework—even the more so as they are copied to the repetitions of January 1889: There is no longer a trace of later alterations, at least in this aspect.
