Vincent Van Gogh Starry Night 1889 oil on canvas. Considered his magnum opus this work depicts his view outside his sanitarium room window of the village of Saint-Remy. The Visconti Van Gogh Impressionist Collection includes a range of pens inspired by paintings from one of the world's most acclaimed artists. Visconti has worked hard to formulate palettes of color that accurately reflect the technique and emotion of each of Van Gogh's paintings. Never before have pens been created that were inspired from a specific canvas - difficult work considering the diversity of objects and techniques used by Van Gogh. Through meticulous and painstaking choice of color and palette mix each Visconti pen is unique and has emerged to represent a specific Van Gogh painting.
The name of the painting and artist are delicately engraved around the pen's ring and each pen is packed into a unique gift box that is complemented with a faithfully reproduced canvas of the painting. The pen itself utilizes Visconti's eighteen-faceted design the many edges enhancing the vivid colors of the pen. As always each pen may be personalized using Visconti's patented 'My Pen System' and Visconti has employed their popular magnetic closure system. Each pen is available in fountain rollerball ballpen and Eco-Roller. For the fountain pen the finely engraved steel nib is available in extra fine, fine, medium and broad point.
