Vincent van Gogh

Bowl with Zinnias and Other Flowers

1886
"Bowl with Zinnias and Other Flowers" displays van Gogh as a colourist and fresh convert to the Parisian art scene. In addition to a lighter palette, his works from this period exhibit a more vigorous brushstroke and an intensified impasto - application of the paint in thick strokes, often taking on a three-dimensional character.
