Vincent van Gogh painted a number of flower still lifes during his last weeks at the psychiatric hospital in Saint-Rémy. For him, the painting was a study in colour and contrast. He did so by placing the purple-blue flowers against a yellow background. Van Gogh spoke of 'an effect of terribly disparate complementaries that reinforce each other by their opposition'.
