The still-life painting Vase with Poppies, Cornflowers, Peonies and Chrysanthemum was completed in the year of 1886 by Vincent Van Gogh. During this period, the Post-Impressionist was living in Paris and kept contact with the other modern artists. Van Gogh wished to study more about color in painting, and he saw the great possibilities in painting flowers. He would receive flowers from friends and family, as they knew his love for portraying them on canvas. The modern artist would also buy random flowers with different colors and shapes. The poppy was a flower he depicts in many of his works, completing a total of seven paintings featuring them during the next four years.
Vincent Van Gogh was inspired by the bright, solid colors and the unusual compositions of the Japanese prints. He had a great collection of these oriental wood-cut prints, as many other Post-Impressionists of the time had as well. He wrote to his brother about this passion, sharing his thoughts about how looking at them gave him great joy and how it inspired him to make floral arrangements. The painting Vase with Poppies, Cornflowers, Peonies, and Chrysanthemum is an example of these mixed floral arrangements that the artist would assemble so he could paint and study color.
Just as the other Post-Impressionists, the light was fundamental in Van Gogh’s paintings. Although this still-life was most likely not painted en plein air, he gives attention to the light and dark of the scene, bringing a dramatic touch to it. The red poppies dominate the painting. In the top left corner, a bundle of white chrysanthemum flowers gathers in radiant light, emerging from the red tonalities. The green-blue background behind the white flowers complements the red and the orange-yellow of the chrysanthemum’s core.
All of these flowers are mixed in a green and yellow vase, that hardly appears because there are many other flowers laid on the table in front of it. The bottom half of the painting has predominantly light pink peonies, but also have a bit of each flower from the title of the painting as well. Specks of blue from the random cornflowers complement the overall red of the still-life. The right side of the background is painted darkly, to make the color contrast of the illuminated flowers pop to the viewer's eyes.
