Flowerpot with Garlic Chives by Vincent van Gogh
Vincent van Gogh (1853 – 1890), Paris, January-February 1887
Original: oil on canvas, 22 x 1.9 cm wxh
This simple still life of a pot of chives has a decorative pattern in the background. It is unclear exactly what Van Gogh was painting – maybe wallpaper or part of an Oriental carpet. The symmetry of the composition is broken by the chive stems on the right, next to the pot.
Ordinary chives have round, hollow leaves; these garlic chives have flat ones with pointed ends.
This masterpiece by Vincent van Gogh can be seen in the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam. Read more about the life and work of Vincent van Gogh on his paintings page.
