Vincent van Gogh, Branch of an Almond Tree in Blossom, February 1890

Van Gogh painted this beautiful canvas, just months before his death in July 1890, as a present to celebrate the birth of his brother Theo's son. It's an extraordinary image bursting with life, borne out of turmoil and pain.

Spring is here. Soon the trees around the city will be exploding with blossoms too.
