CLUE: An early owner of this 1889 painting full of blue & green noted how well the artist “understood the exquisite nature of flowers!”
ANSWER: Vincent van Gogh
About Today’s Final Jeopardy – Wednesday, 11 October 2023
Made in 1889, Vincent van Gogh’s “Irises” showcases vivid hues of blue and green, exquisitely capturing the life and color of the iris flowers it depicts. Octave Mirbeau, the painting’s first owner and an early supporter of Van Gogh, commended the artist’s remarkable skill in grasping the “exquisite nature of flowers.”
The artwork was painted during Van Gogh’s initial week at a psychiatric facility and reflects the influence of Japanese woodblock prints from the 17th century—a style that intrigued Van Gogh and his contemporaries. The use of black contours in the painting is a hallmark of this Japanese influence, serving to heighten the piece’s emotional impact.

Final Jeopardy Video – Wednesday, 11 October 2023
Watch all the videos from today’s Jeopardy episode below, including highlights, behind the scenes outtakes and full episodes.
Final Jeopardy is the final round of the popular American television game show Jeopardy!, in which participants test their knowledge in numerous areas by answering questions. In Final Jeopardy, participants are given a single clue and must wager a percentage of their existing earnings based on their confidence in their ability to successfully respond.
Each contestant surreptitiously writes down their wager during the commercial break. The Final Jeopardy clue is presented when the programme resumes, and participants have 30 seconds to write down their solution in the form of a question (e.g., “What is…?”). When the timer runs out, the host, reveals each contestant’s response and wager in ascending order of their pre-Final Jeopardy scores. The scores of contestants are adjusted based on whether their response is correct or incorrect, as well as the amount wagered. At the end of the round, the contestant with the highest score is proclaimed the winner.
