Van Gogh Irises Vincent Van Gogh was born in the Netherlands, 1853 - 1890. He did not embark upon a career as an artist until 1880. He was supported by his brother Theo who submitted many of his works to the Salon Des Indepenents in France. Most of his best-known works were produced in the final two years of his life. His famous painting was done in 1889. There are no known drawings of the piece, probably because Van Gogh did it as a study. It is likely that it was influenced by Japanese woodblock prints which were popular at the time and were produced in the 17th century. The use of dark contours in Irises is a typical element of these prints and helped to reinforce the expressive power of the painting. Irises is on the list of the most expensive paintings ever sold, selling for 54 million dollars in 1987. It is currently on display at the Getty Center in Los Angeles California.
