Blossoming Almond Branch in a Glass (1888)

Blossoming Almond Branch in a Glass (1888)
One of my favorite still life subjects of Van Gogh, the cut branch in a glass, I ran across this one with the book behind creating a complicated compositional element. Note also the use of complementary colors, red and green, creating a vibration in the painting.

Giuseppe Bernardino Bison

 Happy Birthday Giuseppe Bernardino Bison!! Italian painter, born in 1762, he eventually moved to Venice and studied in the studio of Canaletto. He was also influenced by Tiepolo and Guardi. His work was historical, genre scenes and imaginary landscapes. Don Juan in Hell is one of his fantasy depictions.
