Le foglie che cadono,
le fogne che si intasano,
le citta’ che si allagano
i passanti che annegano
le autorita’ che negano.
Ma resta il cielo a ricordarci un tempo
in cui la vita respirava piena.
Ma resta un cielo a ricordarci il tempo
in cui respirera’ piena la vita.
Art History Meme : [1/9] Favorite paintings
↳ Vincent Van Gogh, Roses, 1890
In May 1890, just before his departure from the asylum in Saint-Rémy, Van Gogh painted an exceptional group of four still lifes, to which both the Museum’s Roses and Irises (58.187) belong. These bouquets and their counterparts—an upright composition of irises (Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam) and a horizontal composition of roses (National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C.)—were conceived as a decorative ensemble, like the earlier suite of sunflowers. Traces of pink along the tabletop and rose petals in the present painting, which have faded over time, offer a faint reminder of the formerly vivid “canvas of pink roses against a yellow-green background in a green vase.” (x)
