Dear Atria, this is the picture of the original painting by Vincent van Gogh taken at the Getty Museum in LA. I am not an art lover but somehow I like this painting. It's somehow easy to comprehend and pleasant to my eye. Do you like it Atria?
Van Gogh painted Irises in the garden of the asylum at Saint-Remy, where he was recuperating from a severe attack of mental illness. Although he considered it more a study than a finished picture, it was exhibited in 1889. Irises exemplifies van Gogh's practice of working directly from life. Its energy and theme - the regenerative powers of the earth - express the artist's deeply personal belief in the divinity of art and nature.
