'Iris' was one of the last paintings he made before leaving the Saint-Paul Asylum in May 1890, just months before taking his own life.
It is believed 'Iris' is simultaneously fragile and hardy, erupting from the earth as the world came back to life in springtime, just as Vincent, suffering from mental illness, was lifting out of a period of particular difficulty and darkness.
Struggling to make a living, Van Gogh's 'Iris' was executed in oil paint on a cheap cardboard support. He painted outside in the asylum gardens, looking down on the plant and his vibrant, aggressive brushwork, along with his brilliant placement of form – learned from Japanese printmaking – make his insightful experience of the iris immediate to us.
The painting was made in two principal sessions, with a final campaign of emphatic retouching. In the second painting session, Vincent re-positioned the central stem in the middle of the plant, with texture from brush marks made in the first session still visible underneath.
