Van Gogh Blossoming Almond Tree Vincent Van Gogh was born in the Netherlands, 1853 - 1890. He did not embark upon a career as an artist until 1880. He was supported by his brother Theo who submitted many of his work to the Salon Des Indepenents in France. Most of his best-known works were produced in the final two years of his life. Blossoming Almond Tree which was painted in 1890 is one of Vincent Van Gogh's best-known paintings. It is noteworthy in that both Van Gogh and his closest family held the work in high regard. This painting is one of a small handful that Van Gogh produced with a particular person in mind, in this case, his brother and sister-in-law's newborn baby. Van Gogh was deeply moved when Theo and Johanna chose to name the child Vincent and he always harbored a great deal of affection for him. Van Gogh painted Blossoming Almond Tree to honor his namesake and it remains a tour-de-force, both the product of Vincent's fondness for his nephew as well as the Japanese art which he so greatly admired.
