Six sunflowers on the royal-blue background (the second version of the series) is missing masterpieces by Vincent Van Gogh produced during his stay in Saint-Rémy. Unfortunately, the original was destroyed during World War II. Called Six Sunflowers and painted in August 1888, it had been in the collection of a wealthy collector, Koyata Yamamoto, living on Japan’s coast when his town was hit by an American bomb on August 6, 1945 — coincidentally, the day the atomic bomb fell on Hiroshima. The painting, hanging over the sofa in Yamamoto’s sitting room, was obliterated. Yamamoto managed to escape the raging firestorm, but his prized picture — with its heavy frame — was too cumbersome to carry. Now, almost 70 years later, a British art historian has unearthed a color photograph that reveals the work in all its glory. I made this reproduction as a wonderful reminder of this brilliant Artist!
