Vincent Van Gogh and Zinnia Flower – Art & History 2

Fig 01- Zinnia elegans with butterfly

The sunflower is one of well known flowers painted by a Dutch painter, Vincent Van Gogh. The cost almost reached US$ 40 million in 1987 auction

I did not know that the painter has other flowers as painting objects as said by Teresa Bernard, 2015: The Flower Paintings of Vincent van Gogh | Teresa Bernard Oil Paintings (teresabernardart.com).

They include:

- irises

- roses

- poppies

- corn flowers

- myosotys

- chrysanthemums

- almond blossom

- red poppies and daisies

- pink roses


Fig 02- Vase with Zinnia, painted by Van Gogh (1886)

What interesting for me is Zinnia flower depicted by Van Gogh. In nature, Zinnia has 13 different species. 


Fig 03- Sky after raining, just for illustration

Native to Mexico and close by areas, Zinnia flowers are popular around the globe now days.

Several popular Zinnias to grow are:

- Purple Prince

- Queen Red Lime

- Aztec Sunset

- Red Spider

- Early Wonder

- Queen Lime


Since Zinnia riches in nectar, the flowers attract many pollinators:

- butterflies

- hummingbirds

- ladybugs

- Japanese Beetles

- wasps


It is might be the reason, Zinnia flowers to be a must plant in the gardens in many countries.

  18. It is incredible to contemplate that Van Gogh died in such abject circumstances, plagued by poverty and mental health issues, and now his paintings sell for sums that the average person cannot even contemplate.

  20. I think all painters paint flowers at least at some point of their career, and the beginning for sure.
