After having a severe break-down, Vincent Van Gogh decided to get treatment in an asylum in Saint-RÃ©my. The artist had mutilated his ear after having a heated argument with his friend Paul Gauguin. He was treated at the retreat for about a year and during this time had no desire to stop painting. The Post-Impressionist stayed indoors while recuperating his health and during this time portrayed versions of artworks from his favorite artists, but mainly painted still life painting of flowers. After recovering enough of his health, the artist was able to roam the outskirts of the asylum and painted many landscapes.
Painting flowers brought much joy to Van Gogh. He often related the art of arraigning flowers to his love for Japanese woodcut prints —he wrote to Theo, his brother, that the more he looked at the prints, the more he felt like making flower arrangements. At the end of the artists stay at the asylum, he paints Pink Roses. Van Gogh found that by painting flowers, he had an excellent opportunity to study color combinations. This painting is an example of the commentary color combinations he became famous for doing. Although the red pigment has mostly faded, making the flowers look as if they were white, it is still possible to perceive some of the pink pigment on the flowers.
The green background features vertical brushstrokes and doesn't vary too much in tonality. It seems Van Gogh had painted a blue vase at some point but covered it almost completely with the background. The dark contours on the leaves help separate them from the background, as they have mostly the same colors. The leaves painted in the middle of the bundle of flowers represent the darkest area of the artwork.
The pink flowers almost look unfinished, as the artist does not depict contours on them and the faded pigment makes the some of the petals look transparent, showing the green background. Van Gogh used an unusual viewpoint, looking at the flowers from above. This perspective can be an influence from the Japanese woodcut prints, as well as the contours he used on the leaves and his choice of portraying the beauty of nature. During this period, he also painted Roses with the same subject and a similar color palette.
