Sunflowers to Brighten His Soul - Oil Painting Inspired by van Gogh
In August 1888, Van Gogh wrote to his brother, a prominent art dealer. In the letter, he wrote of a large sunflower he had seen in a window near his gallery. He explained that it inspired his first series of Sunflowers, painted in 1887.
His paintings, he wrote to his sister in 1890, were “almost a cry of anguish while symbolizing gratitude in the rustic sunflower,” an image that brought him comfort.
The sunflower paintings had a special significance for Van Gogh: they communicated 'gratitude', he wrote. He hung the first two in the room of his friend, the painter Paul Gauguin, who came to live with him for a while in the Yellow House.
