Sunflowers Tea Rose Dress

by selkiecollection.com

$ 295.00

  • Product Description

This collectors-edition Selkie dress is as sweet and as beautiful as a fresh bouquet. Perfect for romantic picnics or tea at the Plaza, this dreamy gown is supportive and lightweight, crafted in the image of Selkie’s Parliament dress to wear just about anywhere. Like Van Gogh’s ever-popular sunflower paintings, this sunny pattern brightens up any room. In fact, Van Gogh first painted his joyful sunflowers to add color to his dreary rental after inviting French artist Paul Gaugin to his studio. Gaugin raved about the colorful paintings and would later go on to replicate them in his own work.

“Van Gogh recognised at once that he had created something important and relished the fact that his sunflowers were so distinctive that they functioned almost like an artist’s signature. As he told Theo in January 1889, while other artists were known for painting particular flowers such as peonies and hollyhocks, “the sunflower is mine”. “Van Gogh realised early on that sunflowers were a uniquely resonant motif which he could make his own,” explains Christopher Riopelle, curator of post-1800 paintings at the National Gallery.

This, in part, accounts for the popularity of Van Gogh’s Sunflowers today: they are a kind of visual shorthand for the artist, whose dramatic and difficult life, culminating in his death from a self-inflicted bullet wound in 1890, continues to fascinate the public.

 “Instead of trying to render exactly what I have before my eyes,” Van Gogh told his brother shortly before beginning the series, “I use colour more arbitrarily in order to express myself forcefully.” This emotional, subjective use of colour would prove enormously influential on modern art, and continues to speak directly to people today. “I’d like to paint in such a way that…everyone who has eyes could understand it,” Van Gogh once said.” -the BBC
