Great Peacock Moth - Van Gogh

We just learned about the painting of Irises by Van Gogh.

Another of Van Gogh's famous paintings is the Great Peacock Moth.

He painted it in 1889, when he made a few different paintings of butterflies and moths.

Van Gogh felt liked the idea of people transforming, so he liked thinking about the way caterpillars do that too.
