Almond Blossom is an iconic painting created by the artist Vincent van Gogh in mid-March 1888. By this point in his life, Van Gogh had mastered his personal painting style, blending impressionism, divisionism, and Japanese woodblock cut into a wholistically unique form of expression. A nature enthusiast from birth, Van Gogh reveled at the entirety of the springtime experience in classic romantic fashion; the season’s symbolism of rejuvenation and rebirth was of particular importance to his troubled personal life, and in Almond Blossom he captured that yearning feeling of early springtime’s unbridled optimism.
