Stock Photo - Oleanders. Artist: Vincent van Gogh (Dutch, Zundert 1853-1890 Auvers-sur-Oise); Date: 1888; Medium: Oil on canvas; Dimensions: 23 3/4 x 29 in. (60.3 x 73 ... .7 cm); Classification: Paintings; Credit Line: Gift of Mr. and Mrs. John L. Loeb, 1962 / For Van Gogh, oleanders were joyous, life-affirming flowers that bloomed inexhaustibly and were always putting out strong new shoots. In this painting of August 1888 the flowers fill a majolica jug that the artist used for other still lifes made in Arles.
