Vase with Fifteen Sunflowers

0 out of 5


– SOLD FOR $39.7 MILLION March 30, 1987 ($82.4 million in 2015 dollars) to the Yasuda Comp.
– For many, this, along with Starry Night, is the ultimate Van Gogh painting, possibly because of the way it captured the public’s imagination with the record-shattering price.
– For us there are other reasons to appreciate it. It has a thick texture – very Van Gogh – and strong colors. The flowers themselves are shown in all stages, from full bloom to withered. Something to ponder on, that…a sort of family photo for flowers!

SOLD FOR $39.7 MILLION March 30, 1987 ($82.4 million in 2015 dollars) to the Yasuda Comp. This was a record at the time, and four times higher than the previous record holder. However, within a few months another Van Gogh painting – Irises – would sell for an even greater amount.

The painting was one of a series of Sunflower paintings done by the artist. Vincent’s friend Paul Gauguin even painted a scene titled “The Painter of Sunflowers” showing Van Gogh at work on one of the many sunflower paintings!

This one, however, got the attention of the wider world with the incredibly high price. Although the painting is still in a museum in Tokyo, controversy did arise about whether it was a forgery or not. For more information on that, go here.
