Vincent Van Gogh’s most famous artwork, Sunflowers which fetched a record $39.9 million dollars when it went under the auction hammer back in 1987. Here I do a painting rendition of his original painting.

If you asked anyone about a famous painting by any artist that has fetched a high price in auctions, most would guess Sunflowers by Vincent Van Gogh.

Although the painting at first glance would not tickle many people’s ideas of an impressive painting it does bring into question of why this particular piece fetched one of the highest bids in history of any post-impressionistic painting. Read the article here…

 

 

To understand the artistic beauty of this piece of work, one would need to examine the piece from a close up. The vibrant colors of the yellow ochre was only possible by the newest technologies of manufacturing pigments around the time Vincent was alive. Luckily this is available courtesy of the Van Gogh Museum of his most famous work on sunflowers and the one that fetched the highest auction price.

It has to be noted that Van Gogh did not paint only one but had a whole series of the sunflowers painting series. Some credited Vincent Van Gogh style to be his own when they talk about his sunflowers painting.

 

Here is a rendition of the painting that I did a while ago, although at that time I did not have the opportunity to work with the high resolution image.
