Van Gogh's Birthday - A look back at the Visconti Van Gogh range

In the run up to the anniversary of famed painter Vincent Van Gogh's birthday, the 30th March 1853, we thought we would take a look at some of his best known works and how these have inspired the master craftsmen and Visconti Pens to create a beautiful collection of writing tools. Visconti have singled out some of Van Gogh's Masterpieces and created some stunning pen collection to match the cacophony of colours and shades seen in the painters own work.

One of the most iconic pieces has to be Van Gogh's Sunflowers. He has created many versions of the beautiful flowers but the one that stands out is the yellow hued version depicted below which was painted in 1888 and now hangs in the National Gallery in London. This painting was considered to be cutting edge at the time as experimentation with the yellow spectrum had only be made possible by recently invented pigments.

Just like the painting, Visconti Italy have created the Van Gogh Sun Flowers Pen collection available in a fountain, ballpoint, rollerball pen and pencil each combing the rich shades and colours of the painting in a delicious natural resin.

We also have the glorious Van Gogh Starry Night Pen collection which uses the deep blue tones seen in the painting mixed with flecks of greens and reds. Take a look at the Visconti Starry Night Ballpoint Pen, a kaleidoscope of rich colours and sleek chrome trims makes this perfect for writing and art lovers alike.

Van Gogh's Self Portraits are other well recognised pieces of his work. The one used for the inspiration for the Visconti Van Gogh Self Portrait collection is a painting which was created in Saint-Rémy in 1889, the last of Vincent's self portraits before his death in 1890. It depicts the left hand side of the artist in order to hide the mutilated right ear and combines the most beautiful light blue, green and orange tones. A colour pattern which is mirrored in Visconti's Van Gogh creations.
