Arts Everyday Living: Searching for Van Gogh—The Missing Flowers

Vincent van Gogh, Poppy Flowers, c. 1887, oil on canvas, Mahmoud-Khalil Museum, Giza, Egypt

When Dutch master Vincent van Gogh (1853-1890) was living in Paris with his brother Theo, he created several vases of flowers, distinguished by vibrant colors and expressive brushwork.  The location of one of these Parisian floral arrangements shown above is unknown: it is said to be currently missing from the Mahmoud-Khalil Museum in Cairo.   Do you think all the flowers are poppies?
