Vincent van Gogh's Sunflowers 1889

I chose Vincent van Gogh's painting Sunflowers because of its simplistic nature. I also liked how the background was a similar color to the focus of the piece (the flowers) yet they still stood out clearly. The background also has no detail except for the fact that it was divided into two colors, making the vase appear to be placed on a shelf. The flowers are sharp, possibly dying, yet the color of the stems are still vibrant, making great contrast between what keeps the flowers alive and the flowers themselves.
