Irises by Vincent Van Gogh (1889)
Van Gogh painted the irises shortly after having himself voluntarily committed to the psychiatric institution Saint Paul-de-Mausole. He referred to the painting as "a lightning rod for my illness" because he hoped that by painting constantly he could avoid descending into madness. The painting Irises is clearly influenced by the Japanese Ukiyo-e woodblock prints that Van Gogh and his peers admired so much. Vincent considered the painting merely a study, but his brother Theo immediately sent it to the annual Societe des Artistes Independents exhibition because he thought it was amazing.
