In August 1888, Vincent van Gogh began painting a series of works which undoubtedly have made him known throughout the world, the sunflowers. Van Gogh envisioned his sunflower works as a series and worked meticulously on them in anticipation of the arrival in Arles, of his friend Paul Gauguin. In a letter to his friend Emile Bernard wrote: "I’m thinking of decorating my studio with half a dozen paintings of Sunflowers. A decoration in which harsh or broken yellows will burst against various blue backgrounds, from the palest Veronese to royal blue, framed with thin laths painted in the orange lead. Sorts of effects of stained-glass windows of a Gothic church."

The sunflower paintings had a special significance for Van Gogh: they communicated ‘gratitude’.
