“What people demand in art nowadays is something very much alive, with strong colour and great intensity,” wrote Vincent van Gogh to his sister in the Summer of 1887. Having in mind the artist’s words, FGreat brought to life the red butterfly pictured at ‘Coin de jardin avec papillons’ (1887) in a film commissioned by Christie’s for the Impressionist and Modern Art Sale.

The beautiful butterfly flies from painting to painting, revisiting masterpieces painted by Van Gogh, until it rests on its original place, at the corner of a garden.

The butterfly’s journey celebrates an artwork that marks, according to experts, a turning point in Van Gogh’s career and style.
