Almond Blossom by Vincent van Gogh

About Almond Blossom
Almond Blossom was made to celebrate the birth of Vincent van Gogh’s nephew, son of his brother Theo and sister-in-law Jo. Theo wrote to his brother on January 31, 1890, to announce the birth of his son, also named Vincent. Vincent was very close to his brother Theo and he sought to symbolize new life in the flowers of the almond tree for the birth of baby Vincent.

The composition is unlike any other of van Gogh's paintings. The branches of the almond tree seem to float against the blue sky and fill the picture plane. The works reflect the influence of Japanese woodcuts.

Flowering trees were special to van Gogh. They represented awakening and hope. He enjoyed them aesthetically and found joy in painting flowering trees.

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.
