Irises - Van Gogh

We just learned about Van Gogh's painting of Trees and Undergrowth.

Another of Van Gogh's paintings is of Irises.

He painted this when he was at the Saint-Paul Asylum, where he made lots of paintings of flowers.

Van Gogh liked to paint a lot and he thought it helped make him feel better.

He called it "the lightning conductor for my illness"
