While sunflowers are an instantly recognizable theme of Van Gogh paintings, he was just as amazed by the cypress, reminding him of the Egyptian obelisks with lines and proportions and praising the green hues of the tree. Focusing on this thought of his, we took special care to emphasize the richness of the green cypress, incorporating a wide palette of colours into the embroidery and adding several layers to bring out the depth that was reminiscent of Van Gogh’s unique painting style. The motif was entirely born in Van Gogh’s imagination, it was not a depiction of a real place he ever visited or has seen in real life. This gave him free reign both with shapes and colours and enriching the painting in ways that a reality-based landscape painting could never do. The layers of paint were expertly duplicated in embroidery, together with stitch directions alluding to brush strokes, making sure the embroidery is just as full of detail and emotion as what Van Gogh himself imagined.
