The original masterpiece was created in 1889. Today it has been carefully recreated detail-by-detail, color-by-color to near perfection. Van Gogh created copies of his own work while in St. Remy asylum. The sunflower paintings reminded him of the happy days spent in a yellow house with another artist. By reproducing his own work he balked at the notion of supremacy for the "one-off" and "never-to-be-repeated" original. In fact he repainted his images so that he might retain a copy of what he gave away to friends. Vincent Van Gogh's restless spirit and depressive mental state fired his artistic work with great joy and, sadly, equally great despair. Known as a prolific Post-Impressionist, he produced many paintings that were heavily biographical. This work of art has the same emotions and beauty as the original by Van Gogh. Why not grace your home with this reproduced masterpiece? It is sure to bring many admirers!
