The work

Van Gogh prepared for Gauguin's visit to Arles by painting a series of canvases to decorate the Yellow House. From this project a sequence of sunflower paintings was born. They are important as a series and are more than just interior decoration. First of all, in these paintings van Gogh shows a further aspect of his current studies on color. They are painted mainly in variations on a single color: yellow. However, instead of using purple, yellow's complement, for contrast, he introduced blue. The rigorous application of the theory failed in the face of the preference for this theoretically arbitrary combination. Its appeal lay in the fact that it had been used by a 17th century Dutch artist, very present in van Gogh's mind in Arles, Vermeer. Van Gogh repeatedly associated Vermeer with yellow and blue.

How reproductions are made

The craftsmen of Trizio Editore make a reproduction of this subject with a unique mechanism . The image is in fact printed several times as a test, until the correct combination of color tones is found. Finally, a professional 12-color inkjet printer creates a perfect copy, which is double-checked by hand and left to dry in protected environments. The artisans spread a natural fixative to preserve the shine and sharpness of the image and package the product entirely by hand.

Appreciated and used today by true connoisseurs of quality, fine papers or pictorial canvases have an ancient tradition. Symbol of Made in Italy recognized throughout the world, these extremely refined prints represent priceless subjects that come to life in a new light.

When printing is carried out, it passes to drying which in protected environments and with precise temperature and humidity helps the colors to remain vivid and full-bodied. The following fixing serves to keep the colors as just done forever. In fact, the fixer comes directly into contact with the surface and creates a real physical barrier between the colors and dust or bad weather.

The choice of frames is then a delicate and precise design step . Beech, maple or cherry, each with its own peculiarities and colours. With natural elements, we have special frames with incredible brilliance and lightness.
The matching of the frames is clearly done depending on the subject. To help us in the choice, art experts and painting masters carry out tests and tell us which choice to make.
All reproductions are chosen and followed by our Italian artisans.
