Made from natural resin uniquely mixed to represent palettes of oil paint, this Visconti Van Gogh series is inspired by the artist's color and technique. Each pen represents a specific Van Gogh painting. The pen utilizes Visconti's eighteen-faceted design, with the many edges enhancing its vivid colors. This Wheatfield with Crows inspired blue fountain pen features a gold-plated stainless steel nib. A converter is included, and it also accepts standard international short cartridges.
As a special introductory offer, it comes in a special gift box that includes a matching bottle of a new Visconti cobalt blue ink. This special edition is dated and numbered (3500 pieces in total), and the nib is unobtrusively and elegantly engraved with the artist's name.
Wheatfield with Crows is one of Van Gogh's most famous paintings and can be admired at the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam.
Blue and yellow, a touch of black. These are not only the main colors of the painting, but also the feelings that we perceive. Looking at the artist's works, impressions become colored, chromatic combinations stir up emotions that find no other name except the name of the color itself. Blue and yellow come to life; they are no longer complements but become the true, compelling subject of the work. This combination of pigments arouses beautiful feelings, which is what Visconti has in mind as they design pens that pay tribute to this great painter of the 1900's.
You can also customize this pen with the magnetized MyPen System. We offer natural stones that you can swap into the finial in place of the Visconti logo coin.
We do our best to photograph the pens to show how they will appear in person, but due to the nature of the material, expect some variation in the pattern from what you see here.
Visconti has recently updated their branding and font used on their clips. During this transition, you may receive a pen with a slightly different font than what is shown here.
