|V Van Gogh RB Oiran
The Visconti ‘Oiran’ collection is made from natural resin, brought to life by blue, purple, red and green hues to recreate Van Gogh’s technique, emotion and mood portrayed in this remarkable painting. The meticulous selection of resins and their color mix is one of the major innovations introduced by Visconti and makes each and every Visconti Van Gogh pen unique. Each pen is packaged in an exclusive gift box.
The Japonaiserie Oiran was painted by the Dutch artist in 1887. Japanese printmaking was one of Van Gogh's main sources of inspiration and he became an enthusiastic collector. The prints acted as a catalyst: they taught him a new way of looking at the world. He saw the prints as an artistic example and thought they were equal to the great masterpieces of Western art history. Once again the artist relies on colors to convey his feelings and in this case he chooses the contrast between strokes of purple, green, blue and red paint.
Van Gogh adopted Japanese visual inventions in his own work after collecting hundreds of prints and canvases in the early 1880's. He liked the unusual spatial effects, the expanses of strong color, the everyday objects and the attention to details from nature. And, of course, the exotic and joyful atmosphere.
