topik: Flowers, Forests
The brilliant artwork of post-Impressionist Dutch Master Vincent Van Gogh (1853 – 1890) powerfully impacted countless artistic movements. Flowering Orchards is a series of paintings executed by Vincent van Gogh in Arles, in southern France in the spring of 1888. Van Gogh arrived in Arles in February 1888 amid a snowstorm; within two weeks the weather changed and the fruit trees were in blossom. Appreciating the symbolism of rebirth, Van Gogh worked with optimism and zeal on about fourteen paintings of flowering trees in the early spring.
