Rare Van Gogh Sunflowers image found

2013-09-13,BBC 报道

A rare photograph of a lost Sunflowers painting by Vincent Van Gogh has been found, showing for the first time how the artist wanted his work to be seen.

Van Gogh painted Six Sunflowers in 1888 but it was destroyed in Japan in 1945.

A photo of the painting has been uncovered in the archives of a Japanese museum, showing that the artist wanted it to be exhibited in an orange frame.

"He saw this orange frame as an integral piece of the artwork," Van Gogh specialist Martin Bailey said.

The painting, also known as Vase with Five Sunflowers, shows the flowers in a vase against a dark blue background.

It was sold to a Japanese collector and shipped to Japan in 1920. But it was destroyed in a fire after US bombing of Osaka during World War II.

Martin Bailey, a curator and correspondent for The Art Newspaper, discovered the photograph while researching his book The Sunflowers are Mine: The Story of Van Gogh's Masterpiece.

"I went back to Van Gogh's letters and he described when he was painting the sunflowers how he was going to put them in an orange frame. That has never been seen before," he said.

"Van Gogh loved complementary colours, like blue and orange together. He was really creating a total work of art, framing his picture.

"We can actually see how Van Gogh wanted to present his sunflowers. We can see the painting as Van Gogh wanted to be seen.

"It was a revolutionary idea at the time, framing a painting in orange. Conventionally, paintings were framed in gilt frames, and modern paintings were sometimes framed in plain white frames.

"It showed what imagination and flair he had in doing something that was rather bold and would have actually appeared shocking. He wasn't frightened of that. He was really using his imagination."

Another of Van Gogh's Sunflowers series sold for £25m in 1987, smashing the record for the world's most expensive painting at the time.

发现罕见的梵高向日葵图像

文森特·梵高(Vincent Van Gogh)的一幅罕见的失落向日葵画照片被发现,这是该艺术家首次希望看到他的作品。

梵高在1888年画了《六朵向日葵》,但在1945年在日本被毁。

这幅画的照片已在一家日本博物馆的档案中发现,表明该画家希望将其展示在橙色框中。

梵高的专家马丁·贝利(Martin Bailey)说:“他把这个橙色的框架视为艺术品不可或缺的一部分。”

这幅画也被称为花瓶与五个向日葵,在花瓶中以深蓝色背景显示花朵。

它被出售给日本收藏家,并于1920年运往日本。但是,在第二次世界大战期间美国轰炸大阪之后,大火烧毁了它。

《艺术报纸》的策展人兼记者马丁·贝利(Martin Bailey)在研究他的著作《向日葵是我的:凡高的杰作的故事》时发现了这张照片。

他说:“我回过头来梵高的信,他描述了他在画向日葵时是如何将它们放在橙色框中的。这是从未见过的。”

“凡高(Van Gogh)喜欢互补色,例如蓝色和橙色在一起。他确实创造了完整的艺术品,将画框定下来。

“实际上,我们可以看到梵高想要展示他的向日葵。我们可以看到梵高想要看到的那幅画。

“当时,这是一个革命性的想法,将一幅画框成橙色。传统上,这些画框采用镀金框架,而现代画作有时则采用纯白色框架。

“这表明了他在做一件相当大胆的事情时的想象力和才华,实际上看起来确实令人震惊。他对此并不感到害怕。他确实在运用他的想象力。”

梵高的另一本《向日葵》系列于1987年以2500万英镑的价格售出,打破了当时世界上最昂贵的绘画纪录。
