Gauguin liked Van Gogh's sunflowers
Paul Gauguin self-portrait
So 4 still lifes with "Sunflowers" in vases were created. Paul Gauguin appreciated them. And he predicted that they would be the hallmark of his friend. And so it happened.
In the summer of 1888 Van Gogh arrives in Arles. Here, for the joint development of a new direction, he invites several artists. Only Paul Gauguin agrees to come. Van Gogh is so grateful to him that he decides to decorate his room with still lifes with sunflowers.

is a fake?
Scandal erupted in 1997
Experts have suggested that the third author's copy of "Sunflowers" stored in Japan is a fake. There were more than enough facts pointing to fake.
Experts were very embarrassed why this painting ended up in the hands of the artist Emil Schuffenecker after the death of the artist. All other Sunflowers went to the brothers. In addition, Schuffenecker was convicted of creating paintings in the style of Van Gogh. Some of these paintings were "exposed".
