Irises was painted while vincent van gogh was living at the asylum at saint paul-de-mausole in saint-remy-de-provence, france, in the last year before his death in 1890.It was painted before his first attack at the asylum. There is a lack of the high tension which is seen in his later works. He called the painting "the lightning conductor for my illness" because he felt that he could keep himself from going insane by continuing to paint.The painting was influenced by japanese ukiyo-e woodblock prints like many of his works and those by other artists of the time. Vincent van gogh (1853 - 1890) was a dutch post-impressionist master whose innovative artwork powerfully influenced modern expressionism, fauvism, and early abstraction. Astoundingly prolific, van gogh produced all of his work during a 10-year period, at one point, creating 150 paintings and drawings within one year. Painting outdoors, van gogh uniquely captured the nighttime nuances of light and shadow, and was also renowned for his paintings of sunflowers and irises. Tormented by mental illness for most of his life, van gogh created many of his masterpieces while he was institutionalized. Although van gogh only sold one painting during his lifetime, he is now regarded as one of the most profoundly influential artists of the 19th century.
