About "The Starry Night"

Painted by Vincent van Gogh in June 1889, "The Starry Night" is widely regarded as the Dutch painter’s magnum opus. It is, along with Leonardo’s "Mona Lisa," one of the most recognized paintings in Western Art.

The view depicted in this work is from the east-facing window of van Gogh’s asylum room in Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, with the addition of an imaginary village. "The Starry Night" is the only nocturne painting in the series of views from his bedroom window.

About "Almond Blossom"

"Almond Blossom" was made to celebrate the birth of van Gogh’s nephew, the son of his brother Theo and sister-in-law Jo. Theo wrote to his brother on January 31, 1890, to announce the birth of his son, who he named Vincent. Van Gogh was very close to his brother and sought to symbolize new life in the flowers of the almond tree for the birth of baby Vincent.

The composition is unlike any other of van Gogh's paintings. The tree branches seem to float against the blue sky and fill the picture plane while reflecting the influence of Japanese woodcuts.

Flowering trees were special to van Gogh. They represented awakening and hope.
