"I put my heart and my soul into my work, and have lost my mind in the process", said Vincent Van Gogh. Van Gogh was a dreamer whose heart was never at rest. His brushstrokes were at times gentle and controlled, at other times wild and feverish. His restless hand reflected the turmoil in his mind.
Visconti is a past master in the selection of colours and the use of innovative techniques.
Each model of the Van Gogh series is inspired by a different painting by the artist. The resin used for each pen is specially blended to reflect the peculiar style and colour palette of his paintings.
The special hand-made resin and the tapered shape of the barrel create the perfect grip for the writer's hand. The material is light yet robust. The Van Gogh Portrait fountain pen is perfectly balanced, functional and aesthetic. Twelve paintings by Van Gogh inspired Visconti to create this series of pens. Four of these masterpieces are already available, and the other eight will be released in due time. There's something to look forward to. Patience is a rare virtue!
Each Van Gogh pen comes with a finely engraved Visconti steel nib and a cartridge/converter filling system.
For the last twenty years, the name Visconti has been synonymous with high-quality writing instruments in an instantly recognisable Italian style. These elegant fountain pens, rollerball pens, ballpoint pens and pencils were developed using precious materials and innovative techniques. Visconti pens are a feast for the eye, and writing becomes sheer pleasure!
