Van Gogh's Sunflowers, the most iconic bouquet of the art world, have a history as vibrant¬†as the pigments themselves. Imagine Arles, France, late¬†1888,¬† early 1989 ‚Äď Van Gogh, not merely painting sunflowers¬†but practically living among them in his studio.¬†It was a floral residency,¬†an artistic commune where¬†each¬†stroke echoed the presence of¬†eternal sunshineand a hint of pollen in the air.

Vincent painted a total of five large canvases with sunflowers in a vase, with three shades¬†of yellow ‚Äúand nothing else‚ÄĚ. It was the artist‚Äôs way¬†of¬†demonstrating that¬†it was possible to create an impactful¬†image with numerous variations¬†of a single¬†colour ‚Äď with mesmerising results.

Apart from their universal recognition, these paintings had a special significance for Van Gogh: they communicated ‚Äúgratitude‚ÄĚ, in his words. He hung the first two in his friend Paul Gauguin‚Äôs room, who lived with him for a while during this period in the ‚ÄúYellow House‚ÄĚ. Gauguin was impressed by the sunflowers, which he thought were ‚Äúcompletely Vincent‚ÄĚ.

Recent investigations added a layer of complexity to Van Gogh's brushwork. Beyond artistic prowess, there's a suggestion of a hidden Fibonacci sequence in the arrangement of petals. The golden ratio in sunflower geometry hints at a meticulous fusion of art and mathematics, showcasing Van Gogh as more than just an artist.

a testament to the artist's emotional journey.
