It is the perfect time of year to paint some sunflowers

It is the perfect time of year to paint some sunflowers

August 26, 2023

Among Vincent van Gogh’s most iconic works is the stunning collection of Sunflowers, a vibrant tapestry of artistic brilliance that continues to captivate art enthusiasts and inspire people all over the world.

Van Gogh's fascination with sunflowers began in the late 1880s when he resided in the south of France. Drawing inspiration from the radiant blooms that graced his garden, he embarked on a series of paintings in the late summer of 1889. The series comprises various versions, each uniquely evoking.

The Sunflowers series is a profound representation of van Gogh's artistic evolution. He captured the essence of these radiant flowers, infusing them with life and energy. The vibrant colour palette and textured surfaces give the paintings a sense of depth and movement, inviting viewers to immerse themselves in the world of the painter’s imagination.

Beyond their visual splendour, the Sunflowers hold a deeper meaning. For van Gogh, these paintings symbolised the beauty of nature and the transient nature of life. They also served as a reflection of his search for solace and happiness amid personal struggles.

Today, the Sunflowers series can be found in esteemed museums worldwide, cherished as timeless treasures of the art world. These iconic paintings continue to elicit awe and admiration, bridging the gap between the past and the present.

We were inspired by van Gogh’s Sunflowers, so much so that we created this Art Squared version of his work.
