Visconti has worked hard to formulate palettes of color that accurately reflect the technique and emotion of each of Van Gogh’s paintings. Never before have pens been created that were inspired from a specific canvas – difficult work considering the diversity of objects and techniques used by Van Gogh. Through meticulous and painstaking choice of color and palette mix, each Visconti pen is unique and has emerged to represent a specific Van Gogh painting. This fountain pen is made from a natural resin uniquely mixed to represent the palettes of oil paint used by Van Gogh. It has Visconti's eighteen-faceted design, with the many edges enhancing its vivid colors. A United States exclusive, this Orchard in Blossom inspired fountain pen features rose gold trim and a stainless steel nib. A converter is included, and it also accepts standard international cartridges.
This pen comes in a unique gift box (the Orchid in Blossom painting is printed on the lid) that includes a matching bottle of the new Visconti purple ink. Due to the material, expect some variation in the pattern. Each pen is slightly different.
Vincent Van Gogh immersed himself in painting the colorful orchard around Arles in the south of France in April of 1888. Orchard in Blossom is thought to depict the plum trees in full bloom. This gorgeous painting is currently being displayed at the Scottish National Museum in Edinburgh.
This Orchard in Blossom pen is also available in a rollerball.
