Roses, 1890 poster by Vincent Van Gogh



‘Roses’ was painted in the weeks leading up to Vincent Van Gogh’s departure from the asylum in Saint-Rémy-de-Provence. Van Gogh had checked himself into the asylum due to a decline in his mental and physical health. During his stay Van Gogh produced several still life paintings depicting flowers, often assigning meaning to each plant. Although he did not make a specific association for roses, he saw all blossoming plants as a celebration of birth and renewal. His choice of flower and harmonious use of colour suggests that Van Gogh felt optimistic about his future.
