This vase is part of an art vase collection called Silhouette d'Art. It is crafted from fine ceramic and decorated with a famous masterpiece painting. Vases are a cooperative effort between two European fine art manufacturers -- Parastone, a Dutch Art Company, and John Beswick, a British ceramic company. The famous art masterpieces are selected for their visual beauty and then applied to a special shaped vase design with a cut edge to enhance a design element from the painting.
Vincent van Gogh (1853-1890)
Post-impressionist painter Van Gogh was a huge influence on developments in 20th-century art. He however did not live to see his artistry recognized and during his life only a single work was sold. At the age of 37, the lonely artist, committed suicide driven to despair by a destructive psychological affliction. After a decade of prolific drawing and painting, he left behind a substantial oeuvre which provided an important stimulus to artistic movements such as Fauvism and Expressionism. He is know for thick application of paint, a technique called impasto, which adds a textural surface to the canvas and forever leaves behind a visual signature of Van Gogh's artistry.
Irises by Van Gogh (1889)
Van Gogh painted the irises shortly after having himself voluntarily committed to the psychiatric institution Saint Paul-de-Mausole. He referred to the painting as a lightning rod for my illness because he hoped that by painting constantly he could avoid descending into madness. The painting Irises is clearly influenced by the Japanese Ukiyo-e woodblock prints that Van Gogh and his peers admired so much. Vincent considered the painting merely a study, but his brother Theo immediately sent it to the annual Societe des Artistes Independants exhibition because he thought it was amazing.
