Vincent Willem van Gogh (1853-1890) was a Dutch post-impressionist painter.

Between 1887 and 1889, he painted a series of paintings of sunflowers, four depicting cut flowers lying on the ground, and seven depicting sunflowers in vases.

Van Gogh's sunflowers were extremely popular and well-known works of art throughout the 20th century, and remain so today.
