You don't need to be an artist to appreciate the bold, colorful design of the Visconti Van Gogh collection. The variegated acrylic resin used to craft these exquisite pens each contain a unique color palette inspired by Van Gogh's paintings. Since the collection's rebirth in 2011, we've seen the following paintings incarnate in pen form:
- Starry Night
- Room in Arles
- Self Portrait Blue
- Pollard Willows
In 2017, Visconti introduces its latest addition, Vincent's chair. Although it is hard to categorize any of these pens as a specific color, "Vincent's Chair" is predominantly a "yellow" pen with cool blue, green and teal swirls.
What makes each pen unique is that the color mix varies greatly from pen to pen. Certain pens may have a little shock or white and orange, as the product photography can attest to showing.
The clip, rings, section, and trims are adorned with silver trim. The fountain pen and rollerball modes have a cap that closes with a magnetic snap. The distinguishing Visconti arc clip is spring-loaded and billed as "indestructible" by the Italian pen manufacturer. The fountain pen has a steel nib and fills using an international ink cartridge or standard size converter (included with purchase). The rollerball pen utilizes a smooth, international-size Visconti rollerball refill. The ballpoint deploys with a twist-action and can be refilled with a Parker style ballpoint or gel ink cartridge.
We're excited about any new addition to this beautiful Van Gogh line, but particularly so when the colors are as stunning as these.
