Visconti Van Gogh Oiran fountain pen
The new Van Gogh-inspired release is Oiran, a collection that pays tribute to the Japanese-influenced homonymous painting (1887).
In fact, the artist painted it during his Japonisme period, a term that indicates the attraction and interest of French painters of the time towards the art of the Rising Sun. The pen, in its nuances, reproduces some of the colours used by Van Gogh: on the barrel the tones are warm, while on the cap they are cooler. The metal coating in yellow gold is a perfect match.
The kit from the Van Gogh 2022 collection also pays homage to the painting which depicts a highborn courtesan. The purple inkis one of the many shades of the traditional kimono worn by
the woman in the painting.
The barrel and cap are made of 18 facets, these 18 facets bring even more elegance and luminosity to the intense and deep shades of the Van Gogh pen.
All the metal parts of the pen are made in brass and then palladium or gold plated, depending on the theme of the pen color..
The pen’s box comes with a picture of the Van Gogh painting it is dedicated to and a bottle with matching ink.
