Van Gogh Irises Silk Neckerchief from The Met Museum


We’ve elevated a classic accessory with a detail from one of Vincent van Gogh’s (Dutch, 1853-1890) radiant spring bouquets. In May of 1890, just before his departure from the asylum in Saint-Rémy, the artist painted four exceptional still lifes, including the exuberant Irises (1890) in The Met collection. Van Gogh sought to achieve a “harmonious and soft” effect by placing the “violet” flowers against a “pink background.” Owing to his use of fugitive red pigments, these colors have since faded with time.
