(original title, in French: Tournesols
) are the subject of two series
of still life
paintings by the Dutch
painter Vincent van Gogh
. The earlier series executed in Paris in 1887 depicts the flowers lying on the ground, while the second set executed a year later in Arles shows bouquets of sunflowers in a vase. In the artist's mind both sets were linked by the name of his friend Paul Gauguin
, who acquired two of the Paris versions. About eight months later Van Gogh hoped to welcome and to impress Gauguin again with Sunflowers
, now part of the painted décoration
that he prepared for the guestroom of his Yellow House,
where Gauguin was supposed to stay in Arles. After Gauguin's departure, Van Gogh imagined the two major versions as wings of the Berceuse Triptych
, and finally he included them in his exhibit
at Les XX
