It is not a visual image of what Van Gogh has saw. It is what he felt about things or views.

Irises Beautiful Study by Vincent van Gogh

13 Nov

Vincent van Gogh painted Irises shortly after he voluntarily admitted himself into the St.-Paul-de-Mausole asylum in Saint-Remy, France. A place is abuzz with terrible cries and howls like beasts in a menagerie day and night, for there are some patients very seriously ill. There is no doubt that whoever goes there would feel panic-stricken. When Vincent van Gogh was sent there, he must be afraid of being these seriously patient. He had to paint to eliminate the horror in his heart.

During the first month of his confinement, Vincent van Gogh was permitted to work in the men’s quarters, the only area he can continue to paint. Irises were painted in the garden to the south of the only area. Vincent van Gogh told his brother that he got along well with his fellows, they liked to see him painting, and they would leave if he required. For more please visit http://www.artisoo.com




The Beauty of Art by Vincent Van Gogh

4 Nov

The bodies of these leave begin to twist without losing their original features. But on the upper left corner of the Vincent van Gogh painting, there are more tiny spots of red irises with the slightly darker colors in the bottom. Does it predict the dark places on the high?

And it forms the composition echoing with the color of land in the lower left corner. At the same time, the usage of these colors makes the whole floral painting with a very clear color level. The painting of the soul is the use of light, so that the whole picture is full of vigor. In the oil painting Van Gogh has painted a white iris which looks noble and very abrupt. Plus the drawing of iris leaves is very soft. For more please visit http://www.artisoo.com

Post-Impressionism Oil Paintings


Post-Impressionism in Western painting, movement in France that represented both an extension of Impressionism and a rejection of that style”s inherent limitations. The term Post-Impressionism was coined by the English art critic Roger Fry for the work of such late 19th-century painters as Paul C├ęzanne, Georges Seurat, Paul Gauguin, Vincent van Gogh, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, and others. All of these painters except van Gogh were French, and most of them began as Impressionists; each of them abandoned the style, however, to form his own highly personal art. Impressionism was based, in its strictest sense, on the objective recording of nature in terms of the fugitive effects of colour and light. The Post-Impressionists rejected this limited aim in favour of more ambitious expression, admitting their debt, however, to the pure, brilliant colours of Impressionism, its freedom from traditional subject matter, and its technique of defining form with short brushstrokes of broken colour. The work of these painters formed a basis for several contemporary trends and for early 20th-century modernism.
