Almond trees flower early in spring, making the blossoms a symbol of hope and new life. When Vincent van Gogh arrived in Arles in the spring of 1880 the blooming blossom trees astound-ed and inspired him. Blossoms against a blue sky quickly became his favourite subject. He made this famous Almond Blossom painting to celebrate the birth of his nephew, the son of his dear brother Theo who named the child after Vincent. Therefore, this painting has always remained closest to the hearts of the Van Gogh Family.
