In March of 1886 Vincent van Gogh arrived in Paris to live with his younger brother, the art dealer Theo van Gogh. The move marked the end of his dark Brabant period. But before he definitively turned to the light and airy colours of Impressionism he painted a number of flower still lifes in which he explored strong colour contrasts. Here, the red gladiolas are set against the green leaves and the white flowers stand out from the painting’s dim background.
