The still life paintings were painted in 1890 by Vincent van Gogh in Saint-Rémy. At the time the work was painted Van Gogh was readying himself to leave the Saint-Rémy asylum for the quiet town of Auvers-sur-Oise outside of Paris. The painting reflects the optimism Van Gogh felt at that time about his future, both in his choice of flowers as a subject and the colors used.
As the end of his stay in Saint-Rémy and the days ahead in Auvers-sur-Oise neared, Van Gogh conveyed his optimism and enthusiasm by painting flowers.
About the time that Van Gogh painted this work, he wrote to his mother,
"But for one's health, as you say, it is very necessary to work in the garden and see the flowers growing."
To his sister Wil he wrote,
"The last days in Saint-Rémy I worked like a madman. Great bouquets of flowers, violet-colored irises, great bouquets of roses."
Vincent van Gogh on this work in a letter to his brother Theo.
“I’ve just finished this canvas of pink roses against a yellow-green background in a green vase. I feel absolutely serene, and the brushstrokes come to me and follow each other very logically.”
Note: The pink along the tabletop and in the rose petals has faded over time.
When Van Gogh left Saint-Rémy on May 16 both rose paintings with very thick paint were left behind to dry. Van Gogh anticipated that it would take one month for the paintings to dry; they arrived in Van Gogh's last residence in Auvers-sur-Oise by June 24 1890
To his brother Theo, Van Gogh wrote,
"What color is in a picture, enthusiasm is in life."
The original work was produced in May (1890) and is currently at the Metropolitan Museum in New York City.
