Van Gogh`s Blossoming Almond Tree

Almond Tree, represents much of what Vincent often thought about: rebirth. Trees blooming and flowering announces the beginning of spring and new life.

Like many of Van Gogh’s paintings, Blossoming Almond Tree has an influence from Japanese prints. Van Gogh collected and admired Japanese artists and used ideas such as bold color, dark outlines, and the beauty of nature in his work.

In fact, Almond Blossoms are several paintings made in 1880 and 1890.
