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.
