Van Gogh 1889."Cypresses" was painted in late June 1889, shortly after Van Gogh began his yearlong voluntary stay as a patient in the asylum in Saint-Rémy. The subject, which he found "as beautiful of line and proportion as an Egyptian obelisk," both captivated and challenged the artist: "It is a splash of black in a sunny landscape, but it is one of the most interesting black notes, and the most difficult to hit off exactly that I can imagine."
Sunflowers, C. 1888 by Vincent van Gogh. “Sunflowers,” now synonymous with van Gogh, is one of a signature series representing life’s stages in the sunflowers’ various phases of bloom. Declaring that “the sunflower is mine, in a way,” Van Gogh used an innovative yellow spectrum made possible by newly invented pigments. Art print from Art.com.
