Retro 51 Tornado The Met Rollerball Pen, Van Gogh's Wheat Field With Cypresses
Officially Licensed Metropolitan Museum of Art fine writing instrument
Cypresses gained ground in Van Gogh’s work by late June 1889 when he resolved to devote one of his first series in Saint-Rémy to the towering trees. Van Gogh regarded this painting as one of his “best” summer landscapes and was prompted that September to make two studio renditions. This painting plus another vertical composition are part of The Met collection among many paintings by van Gogh. Retro51 is honored to present this new rollerball pen based on the master artist’s groundbreaking work.
Multiple colors have been silk-screened onto the stainless barrel to recreate this artwork, framed with polished brass accents. The Met logo is featured on the top ring and finial with a numbered top disc. This pen comes in commemorative packaging tube with a base that can double as a pen stand when it is not in use. Add a van Gogh to your writing collection and discover new creativity at your fingertips.
Each Tornado has The Met logo imprinted on the finial and is finished with polished trim. Although they are not limited editions, the top rings are engraved with The Met logo and a serial number. These beautiful designs are a must have for any art lover.
It is fitted with a smooth flowing rollerball refill that is retracted with its patented knurl twist-top. Replace the rollerball with any readily available Parker-style ballpoint refill and your Tornado is now a ballpoint pen. You'll find both the Retro 51 REF5P capless rollerball refill and Schmidt P900 ballpoint refill for this pen in our store under Refills. Gift packed in matching commemorative Retro 51 gift tube that doubles as a pen stand.
