'The Sunflower is mine, in a way' ~ Van Gogh

'The Sunflower is mine, in a way.' ~ Vincent Van Gogh ~ These words expressed by one of the great masters of art, bring to mind his well known sunflower painting. The words written to his brother, comparing his painting to other flower painters (artists of the day now forgotten). The sunflower painting (of which he made 11) was also painted by others who found it challenging, but worthwhile to paint. So great a piece of art, it has been said that what the Mona Lisa is to Da Vinci, the sunflower is to Van Gogh!
