A flowering orchard surrounded by cypresses - two oil paintings painted by Vincent van Gogh in April 1888 during his stay in Arles. Blooming orchard surrounded by cypresses I (hol. Boomgaard door cypressen omzoomd, English: Orchard in Blossom, Bordered by Cypresses), cat. No: F 554, JH 1388, currently in the collection of Richard J. Bernhard in New York; Blooming orchard surrounded by cypresses II (hol. Boomgaard door cypressen omzoomd, English: Orchard in Blossom, Bordered by Cypresses), cat. No: F 513, JH 1398, currently in the collection of the Kröller-Müller Museum in Otterlo. In March and April 1888, Vincent van Gogh painted the local landscapes of Arles using a barred frame to plot perspective. The theme that particularly enchanted him at the time were flowering orchards and individual trees, because they reminded him of Japanese landscapes. One of the paintings painted at the time is a Blooming Orchard surrounded by cypresses. Both paintings show a view of the garden with a stream in the foreground and with cypresses in the background. The first of these is a preliminary sketch to the second. It has a smaller format and is less polished, being only a theme record; presents in detail the topography of the place, bounded on both sides by two fenced huts.
