With spring in the air and flowers starting to bloom, I am reminded of some of the paintings that Van Gogh did of flowers. His Irises and Sunflowers of course are favorites and are among his most famous paintings. However, I would like to focus more on some of his other works – the paintings he did of entire gardens. Although Van Gogh, unlike Monet, was not famous for a garden of his own, he did make other’s gardens famous. Capturing all of the colors and the beauty of each setting, Van Gogh painted many different gardens each timeless and yet frozen in time never to wilt with the passing of the season. Below are some of these gardens painted in the last two years of his life.
