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. The collection is a tribute to the impressionist art movement and is now a Visconti icon around the world. 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 which enhances 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 Japonaiserie Oiran was painted by the Dutch artist in 1887. Japanese printmaking was one of Van Gogh's main sources of inspiration and he became an enthusiastic collector. The prints acted as a catalyst: they taught him a new way of looking at the world. He saw the prints as an artistic example and thought they were equal to the great masterpieces of Western art history. Once again the artist relies on colors to convey his feelings and in this case he chooses the contrast between strokes of purple, green, blue and red paint.
This collection may be personalized using Visconti's "My Pen System," which uses a magnetic medallion on the pen's top finial. 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.
