New in the Van Gogh 2011 collection is the ''Portrait in Blue'' serie:
The pen is inspired on Vincent Van Gogh's famous painting, "Portrait in Blue", 1889, oil on canvas. This painting is one of his many self portraits: this particulair portrait was made in Saint-Rémy and hangs in the Musée d'Orsay in Paris.
The name of the painting and artist are delicately engraved around the pen's ring, and each pen is packed into a unique gift box that is complemented with a faithfully reproduced canvas of the painting. The pen itself utilizes Visconti's eighteen-faceted design, the many edges enhancing the vivid colors of the pen.
The pen has a stainless steel nib, available in several line widths (14 kt gold nib optional), and uses standard international cartridges or the supplied converter.
The collection can be personalized using the well-known Visconti patent- My Pen System - with the instant application of the initials, the zodiac sign or the semi-precious stone preferred by the fortunate future owner of a Visconti pen. The My Pen System applications can be found in our webstore.
The name Visconti has been for the past twenty years a synonym for writing instruments of extraordinary beauty, historically and technologically studied. The fountain pens, rollers and ballpoint pens by Visconti make up a wide range of high quality instruments with a strong identification.
