About Claude Monet's "Bouquet of Sunflowers", 1881 Painting
Monet exhibited the painting at the 1882 Impressionist exhibition to critical acclaim. It was likewise admired by Vincent van Gogh (Dutch, 1853–1890), who wrote in 1888: "Gauguin was telling me the other day—that he'd seen a painting by Claude Monet of sunflowers in a large Japanese vase, very fine. But—he likes mine better. I'm not of that opinion."
