Hi,
Thank you for the request here and for your patience. I was on a long weekend trip.
You have a vintage framed color printed reproduction of a painting by Vincent Van Gogh with shellac painted surface that makes it appear like an original painting. The original was completed in 1886/87 and it is entitled ‘Crown Imperial Fritillaries in a Copper Vase’. The publisher of yours printed it in different colors from the original. The one and only original is in the collection of the Museum D’Orsay in Paris, France.
Here is a link for you to the catalog entry of the original painting in the D’Orsay Museum:

It was common throughout the 20th century for publishers to print images of paintings and sell them as decorative wall art through decorator, furniture and framing shops.
On today's market, this could sell for a high of $40 - $60. The suggested insurance or replacement value is $100.
