21 March - 21 June 2011
Blossoming trees fascinated Van Gogh. When in search of sunlight and peace he took up residence in Arles in 1888, he made one painting after another in the orchards around the city. These colourful works, including Small pear tree in blossom, evidence Van Gogh’s enthusiastic reaction to the beginning of spring. He also enjoyed painting the flowering trees in the garden of the asylum he was confined to in Saint-Remy, for example the famous Almond blossom, which he made for his nephew Vincent Willem. Blossom presents a selection of his paintings of flowers from the Van Gogh Museum’s collection.
