Vase with Daisies and Poppies - Description

Vincent van Gogh's brother, Theo, was very interested in the Impressionist painting movement, and was known to show representative paintings to Vincent. This painting, Vase with Daisies & Poppies is a striking example of the influence the Impressionist movement had on Vincent. The brush strokes are rapid and thick, expressing movement and speed. The leaves to the right of the bouquet drape dramatically down the vase onto the table. The petals on the poppies themselves are also drawn on with haste, as daubs of bright, vibrant red. The crimson of the poppies is contrasted beautifully with the blue of the back of the bouquet and the white of the daisies to the left of the canvas. This white also reappears as a highlight on the vase. The painting, Vase with Daisies & Poppies was executed during the artist's time under the care of Dr. Paul Gachet. About his time, van Gogh wrote to his brother, saying, " But you will see that his house is full, full like an antique dealer's, of things that are not always interesting. But nevertheless there is this advantage, there is always something for arranging flowers in or for a still life. I did these studies for him to show him that if it is not a case for which he is paid in money, we will still compensate him for what he does for us." (source: http://www.webexhibits.org/vangogh/letter/21/638.htm) The painting was auctioned by Christie's in New York in 1990 and was expected to bring in between $12 to $16 million, although the final number was not released. Nor was the identity or location of the buyer.
