Vase with Fifteen Sunflowers - Vincent van Gogh

Price in US $ - 39.7 million

Based on a still life theme, Vase with Fifteen Sunflowers was created by Van Gogh in August 1888.

It was created in a spectacular series by the Dutch artist. This oil painting series includes similar paintings of fifteen sunflowers in a vase, depicting the illustration of sunflowers passing through several stages of life, beginning with full blooming to withering out. The artist brilliantly produced it in several shades and hues. The painting is regarded especially for its innovative nature, which significantly highlights the use of the yellow spectrum, as well as the newly invented use of colors.
