This is a very nice detail of Van Gogh's painting, it's interesting to see it on that size 12 x 36 it gives a view of irises as if you look trough a narrow window. So the focus is not lost and Van Gogh had this type of natural way to look at things in a special view that makes it so real like in the present time.

Post-Impressionist Grand Master Vincent Van Gogh’s “Irises, Saint Remy, 1889,” depicts the garden of the hospital where he spent the last months of his life. Suffering from depression for most of his life, Van Gogh (1853 – 1890) believed he could remain sane by painting and continued to do so while in Saint Remy. This work, the first he created while he was a patient, was influenced by the strong outlines, unusual angles and unconventional coloring of Japanese ukiyo-e woodblock prints. Selling only one painting in his lifetime, Van Gogh’s “Irises, Saint-Remy” set a world record in 1987 when it sold for $49 million.
This versatile and affordable poster delivers sharp, clean images and a high degree of color accuracy. Your poster is printed with an offset lithography press with a coating to protect the inks.
