"Irises" by Vincent Van Gogh

One of my favorite artists of all time is Vincent Van Gogh. He was born in the Netherlands in 1853. Although he lived a very short life, he produced an incredible amount of beautiful work. He only painted for the last ten years of his life, creating over 800 paintings and over 1000 drawings. Struggling with mental illness, he spent the last year of his life in a mental hospital in Saint-Remy, France. "Irises" is one of the many masterpieces he painted while he was in the asylum in the last year before his death in 1890.
