The painting “Almond Blossom” was a gift to Vincent’s brother Theo and his wife. Nephew Vincent Willem was newly born and what better gift to give than his favorite topic of that moment: flowering trees against a blue sky. Well chosen, because, for Vincent, this image symbolised new life and hope.
YOU WALK ON THE BLUE SKY
“For over the parental bed”; because that’s where this masterpiece takes Vincent’s newborn nephew along Vincent’s view of the world. It is a special painting in every respect. Vincent thought it his best work from this period. Painted in Saint-Rémy-de-Provence with, for Vincent, unprecendented easy of mind and attention to detail.
UNE PROMENADE MAGNIFIQUE
After this painting, Vincent could not find peace. His mental health rapidly deteriorated. “Almond Blossom” was the first and last of its kind. On July 29, 1890 Vincent van Gogh died.
