Sotheby’s is pleased to present its marquee fall Evening Sale of Impressionist & Modern Art, to be held in New York on Wednesday, 28 October.

The sale will be highlighted by Vincent Van Gogh’s Fleurs dans un verre from 1890, a particularly exceptional example of the artist’s flower paintings, painted in a fever of activity only days before his untimely death. Believed to have been painted by Van Gogh in June 1890 shortly after his arrival in the village of Auvers, the work represents one of the approximately seventy canvases completed by the artist in the seventy days before his death in the village on July 29.

Vincent Van Gogh’s Fleurs dans un verre, along with an extraordinary selection of paintings and sculpture by Impressionist & Modern masters, will be exhibited in Sotheby’s New York galleries beginning 21 October, open by appointment only.
