Van Gogh started painting Irises within a week of entering the Saint Paul-de-Mausole asylum in Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, in May 1889, working from nature in the hospital garden. He called painting "the lightning conductor for my illness" because he felt that he could keep himself from going insane by continuing to paint. Van Gogh died the following year of a gunshot wound.

The painting is now in the collection of the J. Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles, CA.

About the Artist,

Vincent van Gogh (born March 30, 1853, Zundert, Netherlands—died July 29, 1890, Auvers-sur-Oise, near Paris, France) was a Dutch post-impressionist painter who posthumously became one of the most famous and influential figures in the history of Western art.

In a decade, he created about 2,100 artworks, including around 860 oil paintings, most of which date from the last two years of his life. They include landscapes, still lifes, portraits and self-portraits, and are characterized by bold colors and dramatic, impulsive and expressive brushwork that contributed to the foundations of modern art. He was not commercially successful, and his death at 37 came after years of mental illness, depression and poverty.
