About Almond Blossom

Preceding his death, Van Gogh admitted himself to Saint-Rémy-de-Provence asylum where he painted 150 paintings in his stay of one year. During his stay, the artist created many of his iconic paintings (such as The Starry Night ). While Van Gogh resided in Saint-Rémy, he received a birth announcement indicating the son of his brother, Theo, was born. Theo and Johanna ('Jo') named their son after Vincent, giving him the name of Vincent Willem Van Gogh. As a gift, Van Gogh sent them the special Almond Blossom painting.

Van Gogh

Van Gogh was a master painter who strongly influenced the abstract and Neo-expressionist who came after him. Originating from the Netherlands, he discovered Impressionist art while living in Paris and started to use the color and light. His work is well known for its beauty, emotion, and color, as well as its interesting viewpoints of mundane objects. Despite being extremely poor and generally unknown throughout his lifetime, Van Gogh is now one of the greatest Dutch painters.  He lived a life with emotional tension and madness, and he created his finest piece, Starry Night, inside an institution. Although the specter of mental illness haunted him throughout his adult life and created a habit of inflicting self-harm (such as the infamous severed ear), his work remained a testament to his genius. Van Gogh died at the age of only 37, due to a self-inflicted gunshot wound. His brother Theo would go on to distribute his work and cultivate his popularity.
