“Irises” is a captivating oil painting created by Vincent van Gogh in 1889, well-known for its vibrant colors, intricate details, and the artist’s signature post-impressionist style.

The painting centres a bed of Irises in various shades of blue, purple, and green. Van Gogh employed bold, contrasting hues to create a sense of abundance and vitality, reflecting his fascination with nature and his ability to infuse his paintings with emotional resonance. The brushwork on each iris showcase their intricate and delicate petals, highlighting van Gogh’s unique ability to capture the essence of nature while infusing his work with his own emotional depth.

This artwork was one of van Gogh’s later works and the first painting created during his voluntary stay at the Saint-Paul-de-Mausole asylum in Saint-Remy-de-Provence. France, where he was motivated to seek treatment for his mental heath issue. Van Gogh’s masterful technique, his profound connection to nature and use of art as a means of expressing his innermost emotions continues to captivate viewers and inspire contemplation about the intersection of art, nature, and human emotion.

On a canvas of 165 x 125mm, a new minting technique called “Tri-Metal ” was applied to give this piece its remarkable weight while keeping its proportions true to the actual painting. This is made possible by combining 750g of Zinc as a center layer and 120g of copper as a base with a top layer of 2.5 oz of 999 fine Silver, resulting in a high relief. This is a limited edition of 399 pieces only. Each piece is packaged and delivered with a Certificate verifying its edition number and authenticity.
