This is one of four paintings of sunflowers dating from August and September 1888. Van Gogh intended to decorate Gauguin's room with these paintings in the so-called Yellow House that he rented in Arles in the South of France. He and Gauguin worked there together between October and December 1888.
The dying flowers are built up with thick brushstrokes (impasto). The impasto evokes the texture of the seed-heads. Van Gogh produced a replica of this painting in January 1889, and perhaps another one later in the year. The various versions and replicas remain much debated among Van Gogh scholars.

Review by: AngelaThis was a 21st gift. It arrived in Australia within 2 weeks of order with no damage as it was well packaged. The print is very close to the original and brought tears of joy to my daughters eyes when she saw it as it brought back memories of our visit to the gallery. The purchase was easy and we will use the gallery online purchase again. Thank you.

Review by: TatianaThank you for the high-quality print of Sunflowers! The colours are beautiful, very close to original, which is very important for Van Gogh's works. It is almost impossible to make such quality Sunflower print in Moscow. Also, I would like to notice, that the delivery from London to Moscow took only 3 weeks, which is rather fast. It was a great pleasure to deal with your shop and to visit The National Gallery , thank you again!
