Made from natural resin uniquely mixed to represent palettes of oil paint, this Visconti Van Gogh fountain pen 2019 series is inspired by the artist’s color and technique. Each Pen represents a specific Van Gogh painting; the name of the painting and artist is delicately engraved around the pen’s ring.
The pen utilizes Visconti’s eighteen-faceted design, with the many edges enhancing its vivid colors. This Starry Night fountain pen features a stainless steel nib. A converter is included, and it also accepts standard international short cartridges. It comes packaged in a unique gift box that is complemented with a faithfully reproduced canvas of the painting.

A pen represents the perfect balance between aesthetics and intellect. It is the only tool that can express the depth of a thought while looking as beautiful as a jewel.
Visconti’s story starts in Florence during the 80s. Two friends, both passionate about fountain pens and calligraphy decide to produce handmade writing instruments.
VAN GOGH COLLECTION
Vincent Van Gogh managed to push emotion to its extremes in every one of his brush stroke. Inspired by this artist’s unconventional vision, Visconti created a collection that would soon become iconic.
Van Gogh’s use of colour is an intrinsic part of his art.
To honour the famous Dutch painter, Visconti reproduced the textures of oil painting on his canvases in pen form.
The refined technique used to produce resin makes it possible to capture the interplay of Van Gogh’s colours. The coloured swirls combine differently on every writing instrument, making each one a unique exemplar with its own personal story.
The barrel and cap are made of 18 facets, a shape used for the first time in Visconti designs.
The 18 facets bring even more elegance and luminosity to the intense and deep shades of the Van Gogh pen.
