This cover consists of a detail from the painting Irises by Dutch artist Vincent van Gogh (1853-1890). He was one of the greatest post-impressionist painters. Van Gogh's mental health was fragile. We know of the crisis in which he cut a piece out of his ear. After this incident, Van Gogh was admitted to the Saint-Paul Asylum in Saint-Rémy in the south of France.
His recovery began by painting the clinic's garden. The Van Gogh Irises is one of the works of art created there. The original painting is in the J. Paul Getty Museum.
