Vincent van Gogh produced a notable series of seven paintings, including Three Sunflowers, Five Sunflowers, Twelve Sunflowers (in a Vase), and Fifteen Sunflowers. These captivating artworks were crafted between August 1888 and January 1889 in Arles, Southern France. Vincent dedicated himself to these creations in preparation for the arrival of his fellow painters Paul Gauguin and Emile Bernard, envisioning the establishment of an artist colony in Provence. In a letter addressed to his brother Theo, Vincent shared his intentions, stating, "I have devised a plan to paint a series of artworks, with the aspiration of living alongside Gauguin in our own studio. Each piece will showcase magnificent sunflowers... Should I successfully execute this plan, there will be a total of twelve paintings. A symphony in blue and yellow. I commence my work every morning at sunrise, as the flowers fade swiftly and the entire project must be completed in one continuous effort."
