I will pay for the following article The World of Van Gogh: 1853-1890. The work is to be 5 pages with three to five sources, with in-text citations and a reference page. The author of the paper tells that the petals of Van Gogh ‘s sunflowers, for example, created with single broad strokes in the heavily applied paint, seem to almost peel off the surface as they fall from the flowers, catching and reflecting light in various ways to give the painting a different impression from every viewpoint. . This technique also functions to add shadows in predictable areas, further emphasizing the idea of decay as well as the sense of physical presence despite the somewhat unrealistic colors used.

He used the pointillist technique of the expressionist movement to illustrate the intricate design of the sunflower seed heads while he allowed the background plane of yellow to recede by using a subtle color wash in the style of the earlier impressionists. This combination of style can be seen in many paintings made by Van Gogh, such as Two Crabs, currently on display at the National Gallery.

Thrown into this discussion where the relative merits of Japanese art.
