Description of the picture :

Pink roses – Van Gogh. 1890. Oil on canvas. 32×40

   Faded roses on a bright background – this is an ungiped content of still life. The author optically “tears” roses from the canvas and offers the viewer to carefully consider the flowers, change the attitude towards them. The whole life of the artist was held in the struggle to recognize his right to a special look at the world around him.

   Still life with roses is a desperate attempt to draw attention to his work. In this case, the author refuses his favorite vibrant color combinations. The color of the work is soft and unobtrusive. Only one of the roses is painted in a completely non-author color – blood color.

   The artist for society was just a crazy experimenter. Therefore, his last work is now perceived especially sharply.
