This Van Gogh Necktie makes a excellent Van Gogh gift for art teachers, art enthusiasts and any guy who loves ties! The iconic painting of Van Gogh's Irises is beautifully reproduced on a 100% Microfiber necktie. The painting was executed in 1889, there are no known drawings of the piece, probably because Van Gogh did it as a study. The use of dark contours in Irises is a typical element of Japanese Woodblock prints which Van Gogh admired, and he used these strong elements 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.
Vincent Van Gogh was born in the Netherlands, 1853 - 1890. Van Gogh spent his early adult life working for a firm of art dealers. After a brief spell as a teacher, he became a missionary worker in a very poor mining region. He did not embark upon a career as an artist until 1880. Most of his best-known works were produced in the final two years of his life. The central figure in Van Gogh's life was his friend and brother Theo who continually and selflessly provided financial support.
