François Joseph Delarebeyrette (1825–1886) was the main Parisian dealer of works by Adolphe Monticelli (1824–1886). When Vincent lived in Paris, the late Delarebeyrette’s wife, Eveline, and their son Gabriel had taken over the gallery. In 1886, their inventory numbered 40 works by Monticelli, who heavily influenced Vincent’s perception of colour. Vincent must have visited the gallery multiple times, and he occasionally referred to works he had seen there in letters to his brother Theo. He considered Monticelli a great colourist who had followed in the footsteps of Eugène Delacroix:

“That Monticelli would sometimes take a bouquet of flowers in order to put on a single panel the whole range of his richest and most perfectly balanced tones. And that you have to go straight to Delacroix to find such an orchestration of colours.” Read the complete letter

Vincent and Theo owned six of Monticelli’s works, including Vase with Flowers, now part of the Van Gogh Museum’s collection.
