The Zoe Van Gogh series of lamps is the result of the collaboration between Cangini e Tucci x Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam.
The art of the greatest impressionist painter of all time meets the quality of craftsmanship and Made in Italy.
All the lamps are designed and made in Italy by expert artisan hands
and master glass blowers.
The small imperfections that can be found on the surfaces of the decorations are peculiarities that attest the uniqueness of the product and the diversity
of each product from the other and are therefore to be considered a reason of value, like the signature of a great artist.
Large blossom branches like this against a blue sky were one of Van Gogh’s favourite subjects. Almond trees flower early in the spring making them a symbol of new life. Van Gogh borrowed the subject, the bold outlines and the positioning of the tree in the picture plane from Japanese printmaking.
The painting was a gift for his brother Theo and sister-in-law Jo, who had just had a baby son, Vincent Willem. In the letter announcing the new arrival, Theo wrote: ‘As we told you, we’ll name him after you, and I’m making the wish that he may be as determined and as courageous as you.’ Unsurprisingly, it was this work that remained closest to the hearts of the Van Gogh family. Vincent Willem went on to
found the Van Gogh Museum.
