In 2009 Visconti announced the phase out of the Van Gogh pen, after more than 10 years of success worldwide, leaving a gap of colors and designs in pens' range; however, they announced also that they would have developed a new model, even more inspired to Van Gogh work.
Here is the result: pens which honour his most famous paintings.
Starry Night is the blue pen, enlighted by green, white and yellow nuances; The Room in Arles is the brown pen, with yellow-orange shades; Sunflowers is the yellow pen, with ochre, brown and green veins and spots; Self-portait is the light blue pen, with white and brown veins. Iris is green, with deep blue and yellow-orange accents, Pollard is rusty brown with green, yellow and grey veins.
The fountain pen features cartidge/converter filling system and a small steel nib, F - M - B; and now also the new extra-flex nib, in EF only.
The new Van Gogh series includes fountain pen, rollerball, rollergraphic, ballpen and pencil.
Starry Night: blue pen, enlighted by green, white and yellow nuances;
Van Gogh Rollergraphic
Stunning roller version: it works with fountain pens' ink!
Also the Van Gogh series features the magnetic lock, simple and efficient at the same time. In this case not only has Visconti optimized the necessary opening effort but has also conceived the system with a view to render the closing easier as well. The closure results best for everyone, even for those particularly distracted, allowing to avoid in this manner accidents such as those typical of the twist closing pens.
