Van Gogh Roses Paperweight from The Met Museum


In May of 1890, on the eve of his departure from the asylum in Saint-Rémy, Vincent van Gogh (Dutch, 1853-1890) painted four exceptional still lifes, including the tranquil Roses (1890) in The Met collection. Though the color has since faded, traces of pink nestled in the blooms and along the tabletop hint at the vividness of the artist’s “canvas of pink roses against a yellow-green background in a green vase” in its original state. Our paperweight, exhibiting a detail from this celebrated composition, will elevate any home or office desk.
