Color color everywhere

Produced in Japan in 1921, this fabulous image comes from a new book by Martin Bailey called The Sunflowers are Mine. Van Gogh’s original painting was destroyed by Allied bombing, but this print, belonging to the Mushakoji Saneatsu Museum near Tokyo, survived.
If playing with saturated colors makes you happy, then mosey over to Tin Eye Labs, which allows you to search Creative Commons images on Flickr by color and combine them in various proportions. After that, the possibilities are endless.

  1. WHAT STUNNING VISUALS! DOES THE PRINT TRAVEL TO DIFFERENT MUSEUMS, OR STAY LOCAL TO JAPAN?

  2. I think it must stay there. People are on the lookout for other copies though.

  3. Considering Van Gogh's interest in ukiyo-e woodblock prints, it's nice to see the reciprocal admiration by the Japanese for his art.
