Irises is a painting by the Dutch artist Vincent van Gogh. It was one of his first works while he was admitted at an asylum in France in the last year before his death in 1890. It was painted before his first attack at the asylum. There is a lack of the high tension which is seen in his later works. He called the painting "the lightning conductor for my illness", because he felt that he could keep himself from going insane by continuing to paint.
