Van Gogh intended the three orchard paintings, The pink orchard, The white orchard, and The pink peach tree to go together: a letter to Theo includes a sketch of the triptych he had in mind. Between 24 March and 21April 1888 he made no fewer than fourteen paintings of fruit trees in blossom. He hoped they would sell well: they were, he wrote, ‘motifs which everyone enjoys.’
