The Sunflowers Irony


Sunflowers of Van Gogh represent the biggest irony in the life of this artist, after he lived a very poor life.  In an auction in London in 1987 went for 34.000.000$.

Vincent said: “Is not my fault that my pictures don’t sell, but one day people will know that they are worth more than the materials I used to painted them”

In this series of paintings, we can admire the geniality of the painter. Even Paul Gaugin loved his sunflowers, doing a portrait of Vincent Van Gogh painting sunflowers.

In the majority of the Sunflowers of Van Gogh, we can not appreciate a minimum shadow, because the light should come from the colours, from inside the flowers. We could feel the movement of the flowers starting to die.
