Sunflowers, Richard Nicolaüs Roland Holst, 1892

pen, h 490mm × w 397mm More details

Roland Holst was one of Vincent van Gogh’s first admirers. He helped organise a Van Gogh exhibition in Amsterdam in the winter of 1892-1893. For the accompanying catalogue he designed a cover illustrating a dying sunflower before the setting sun. Perhaps somewhat less sentimental is this detailed, forcefully drawn study of an overblown sunflower.
