Van Gogh's sunflowers were painted in a time of optimism. Recently moved to the South of France, Van Gogh hoped to collaborate with other artists and form a community of arts, and his mentor was to be Paul Gauguin. Though the goal of community failed, Gauguin loved the monochrome expression of the sunflowers, calling them ‘a perfect example of a style that is completely Vincent’.
