Hand Knotted Van Gogh Inspired 8ft X 8ft Carpet


This had knotted carpet is dedicated to "Still Life With Meadow Flowers and Roses", a celebrated painting by Vincent Van Gogh that can be found in the Kroeller-Mueller museum in Otterlo. The work is thought to have come from the period when Van Gogh lived with his brother, Theo in Paris from 1886.

Van Gogh originally painted a canvas of two wrestlers and then painted Still Life With Meadows and Roses over it. Using a new X-ray technique, researchers examined the two wrestlers in more detail. Researchers say that the wrestlers posing half-naked in the original painting was characteristic of the Antwerp academy where Van Gogh studied.

Van Gogh also wrote to his brother saying that he was pleased with how the wrestlers painting had turned out. But he later painted directly over it which experts say accounts for the "uncharacteristic exuberance" of the floral still life.
