Irises is one of several paintings by Vincent van Gogh made at the Saint Paul-de-Mausole asylum in Saint-Rémy-de-Provence at year before his death in 1890.
The painting was influenced by Japanese ukiyo-e woodblock prints, but it is a true original.
As his brother Theo said '(It) strikes the eye from afar. The Irises are a beautiful study full of air and life.'
They are indeed, which explains why it is one of his most renowned works.
