Van Gogh - Imperial Crown Fritillaries

FurnitureBrains in conjunction with Overstock.com presents this item.
Vincent van Gogh's Paris period is 1886-1888 preceding his move to Arles. After arriving in Paris, Vincent begins studies with Cormon (1845-1924) at his atelier. Vincent is not as influenced by the training with Cormon as much as by the introduction to his fellow students: John Russell, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, and Emile Bernard. Later in the year, Vincent's brother, Theo, who is managing an art gallery in Montmartre, introduces Vincent to the works of the Impressionists: Claude Monet, Pierre-August Renoir, Camille Pissarro, Edgar Degas, and Georges Seurat. The Impressionists' work has a profound influence on Vincent and his use of color. Later in the same year, Vincent became friends with Paul Gauguin, and a turbulent relationship forms that would later prove to be a turning point in both Vincent's and Gauguin's life.

Imperial Crown Fritillaries in a Copper Vase was painted in Paris in 1887. During this period, Vincent experiments with different styles including Japonaiseries and pointillism. He gave this piece an unusual background that was somewhat pointillist although the characteristic drawing-like brushstrokes are pure Van Gogh.

Imperial Crown Fritillaries in a Copper Vase includes a sculpted frame with gentle engravings designed to emphasize the art. The frame also includes a wooden liner with a subtle fillet. The frame color is a merlot with rich walnut undertones.

Our canvas fine art replicas surpass most reproductions available in the market today. Each canvas is recreated in amazing detail so that even the subtlest brushstroke becomes vibrant. Artist-grade canvas is hand-stretched over wooden stretcher bars by skilled artisans and hand coated with protectants to insure archival properties.

This framed canvas is being custom built for you. Please allow 5 business days for the product to leave our warehouse.
