[Announcing] Erin Hanson: The Sunflower Collection

Sunflowers through the Lens of Impressionism

Saturday, May 14, 2022

Oregon-based contemporary impressionist Erin Hanson is poised to release a brand-new painting collection focused on the ever-luminous bloom, the sunflower. The Sunflower Collection is an ode to the impressionists who came before her, including Monet and van Gogh, who celebrated the beauty of sunflowers in their iconic paintings.

This sunflower collection will include paintings of cut flowers in vases, wildflower blooms, and cultivated fields of sunflowers. Hanson has been an avid fan of impressionism since she was a young child when she experienced van Gogh’s painting Irises in person and discovered that a painting could be more colorful than nature. Van Gogh’s works, as well as paintings of other early impressionists and post-impressionists, have shaped and fueled Hanson’s ambition to flood the world with natural beauty as seen through the lens of impressionism.
