The arrival of spring in Arles in 1888 found Van Gogh “in a fury of work.” As he wrote to his brother Theo, “the trees are in blossom and I would like to do a ProvenÂ© al orchard of tremendous gaiety.” Between late March and late April, the artist dedicated fourteen canvases to the subject, working in a range of sizes, formats, and styles. This composition, dominated by the angular, elongated branches of the budding trees, attests to Van GoghÂ© ï¿½s admiration for Japanese prints. His inclusion of the scythe and rake makes this one of only two orchard paintings to hint at a human presence. All prints and frames are 100% American made at our warehouse in Cincinnati, OH.
