Vincent van Gogh’s “Orchard with Peach Trees in Blossom” is a vibrant example of the Post-Impressionist style, painted during the spring of 1888 when van Gogh was residing in Arles, southern France. This piece is particularly special because it represents an evolution in van Gogh’s style, characterised by his unique brushwork and use of colour, as well as his growing fascination with Japanese art.

When we examine “Orchard with Peach Trees in Blossom,” one of the most striking features is its expressive brushwork. Van Gogh uses thick, swirling strokes to convey the vibrant energy of the blossoming orchard. This characteristic style is known as “impasto,” a technique that adds texture to the canvas by layering paint in thick amounts. These dynamic brushstrokes are a common feature in Van Gogh’s work and are a hallmark of Post-Impressionism.

Another key feature of this painting is van Gogh’s use of colour. The bright hues and contrasting shades reflect his move away from the somber palette of his early Dutch works. Here, the rich pinks of the blossoming peach trees contrast with the clear blue sky and vivid green grass. This bold use of colour is emblematic of van Gogh’s mature style and reflects his belief that colour could be used to express emotion and inner experience.

The “Orchard with Peach Trees in Blossom” also exhibits van Gogh’s deep appreciation of Japanese art, which was becoming increasingly popular in Europe during the late 19th century. The artist was particularly influenced by the simplicity, bright colouration, and close attention to nature found in Japanese woodblock prints. In this painting, we can see the influence in the way van Gogh flattens the space, minimising perspective to create a decorative pattern of colour and form, reminiscent of a Japanese print.

This painting is special not only because it marks a significant shift in van Gogh’s style, but also because it encapsulates the artist’s mental state during this period. The bright, joyful colours and serene subject matter are a stark contrast to the tumultuous personal struggles that van Gogh was facing at the time. It serves as a poignant reminder of van Gogh’s resilience and his ability to find beauty and inspiration even in the midst of personal turmoil.
