Vase avec marguerites et coquelicots Giclee Print

This is a high quality fine art giclee print of a spectacular 1887 painting by impressionist Vincent Van Gogh, ' Vase avec marguerites et coquelicots' or 'Vase with Daisies and Poppies'. It is interesting to note that Van Gogh didn't start out to be an artist but a missionary. But through the years he became very aware of scenes around him and of the everyday people. In 1880, Vincent followed the suggestion of his brother Theo and took up an earnest study of art. When he was 27, in 1880, he went to Brussels, intending to follow his brother's recommendation to study with the prominent Dutch artist Willem Roelofs who ended up persuading the reluctant Van Gogh to attend the Royal Academy of Art. There he not only studied anatomy, but the standard rules of modeling and perspective, all of which, he said, ' you have to know just to be able to draw the least thing.' Vincent wished to become an artist while in God's service as he stated, ' to try to understand the real significance of what the great artists, the serious masters, tell us in their masterpieces, that leads to God, one man wrote or told it in a book, another in a picture.'

The quick frame option comes ready to hang and framed as shown, with acrylic glass and a solid wood black frame, no mats.
