Vincent van Gogh
Dutch, 1853-1890
Vincent van Gogh is one of the most popular artists of all time, although his work was scarcely appreciated during his lifetime. His expressive and emotive use of brilliant color and energetic application of paint produced a rich impasto surface that conveys palpable drama.
Van Gogh was born in Holland, the son of a pastor. In the 1870s he was employed in various ways, including as a preacher and, like his brother Theo, as an art dealer. By 1881 Van Gogh had begun painting seriously. As an art student he expressed an interest in Japanese prints, which would later become a central influence on his style and artistic outlook. He moved to Paris in 1886 and became part of the avant-garde art community, meeting painters such as Edgar Degas, Paul Gauguin, Camille Pissarro, and Georges Seurat.
In 1888 Van Gogh settled in Arles in the south of France, partially because he thought the warm climate would benefit his poor health (now thought to be a form of epilepsy). He entreated Gauguin to join him but the two parted after a quarrel. The following year Van Gogh voluntarily committed himself to a sanatorium at Saint-Rémy; during this period he executed The Olive Orchard (1889). Because of repeated illness he spent much time in the hospital. In 1890 he moved to Auvers, w he made his last works. Van Gogh died, a suicide, in July of that year. Theo, to whom Vincent addressed many touching and revealing letters, provided his brother's sole means of financial support.

So beautiful, so delicate!

About Artis Orbis
With great pride, Goebel presents Artis Orbis, "Artists of the World."
Artis Orbis, Goebel's top selling European line of decorative accessories, is now available in America. This new 250-piece collection of uniquely designed accessories contains German crafted porcelain featuring the breathtaking artwork of the world's most renowned artists. The line includes classic artists such as Monet, Renoir, and Van Gogh among others.
The artfully decorated vases, trays, plates, boxes and bowls in this collection allow every accessory in your home to be a masterpiece. Artis Orbis is ideal as a distinctive way to decorate your home, as the start of an art collection, or as an attractive gift for family, friends, and art lovers.
Each item in the Artis Orbis Collection is crafted of the finest porcelain and signed with the signature of the original artist. The painstaking production process begins with a critical review of each painting to determine the shapes and product forms that will best bring the artwork to life. Next, detailed photographs of the paintings are studied and digitally enhanced to shape the artwork to the porcelain or glass body. Color transfers or decals are then created and scrutinized to ensure the colors precisely match the original painting. The decals are then hand-cut and shaped to conform to each figure. Depending on the complexity of the design, up to six different decals may be applied by hand. Finally, the porcelain or art glass is then fired and finishing touches such as gold rims and hand-painted accents are added.
For 130 years Goebel has been a leader in the design and manufacturing of fine giftware and collectibles, an innovator in porcelain technology, and an incubator for artists and sculptors. Goebel's talent for transforming fine art into porcelain and...
