Sunflowers (1888)

  • Oil on canvas
  • 36.2 x 28.7 inches
  • 92.1 x 73 cm

Dawning different shades of yellow and green, Van Gogh’s sunflower paintings were originally intended to be decorations for his home in Arles, the Yellow House.

Van Gogh’s Chair (1888)

  • Oil on canvas
  • 36.1 x 28.7 inches
  • 91.8 x 73 cm

Although it may seem like a simple painting of a chair and a pipe and tobacco on terracotta tiles, this painting functions as a pseudo-portrait for the artist and is meant to be hung beside another chair pseudo-portrait, that of Paul Gauguin.

Farms near Auvers (1890)

  • Oil on canvas
  • 19.7 x 39.4 inches
  • 50.2 x 100.3 cm

This painting of farm buildings and fields was one of the last paintings Van Gogh painted in his Auvers home before his death.
