Shortly after arriving in the city of Arles, in the south of France, van Gogh became intrigued by the flowering fruit trees that populated the orchards there in the spring of 1888. He began to paint many flowering fruit trees like peach, almond, apricot, and peach. Orchards in Blossom is dated April 1888 and is thought to depict plum trees in full bloom.
Vincent van Gogh is considered one of the most important painters in art history. Inspired by the famous artist, Visconti re-imagined his colors, textures and emotions to create their world famous van Gogh collection.
Made from natural resin, uniquely mixed to represent the palettes of oil paint van Gogh used to paint his masterpieces, the pen collection features Visconti's eighteen-faceted design, with the many edges enhancing their vivid colors. The meticulous selection of resins and their color mix is one of the major innovations introduced by the van Gogh collection. The clip on each pen is unique to Visconti and reveals the origin of the brand, as it takes inspiration from the Ponte Vecchio Bridge in Florence, Italy.
The van Gogh Gift Set will be available as a fountain pen with fine, medium and broad widths. The stainless steel nib is a usual Visconti performer. The pen ships with a convert for bottle ink.
The rollerball uses the typical Visconti rollerball refill or any of the additional choices we have available.
