Van Gogh Irises postcard. Oil painting on canvas from 1890. Van Gogh created multiple iris paintings throughout his career, Still Life with Irises features a bouquet of freshly cut irises in a yellow vase with a yellow background. The Irises are in full bloom and lean over the edge of the vase towards the table. In typical Van Gogh fashion, the irises seem vibrant, thick, heavy, and full of life. A beautiful gift for fans of Van Gogh, post-impressionism, iris paintings, and French art.
