Painted Tales - Almond Blossoms
Vincent van Gogh is arguably the most recognized artist in the world. While
his lonely, turbulent life is well known, many people are not aware of the
sensitivity and compassion that fueled much of his art. Dr. Gachet, van Gogh’s
physician, and his daughter, Marguerite Gachet, saw this side after
befriending the estranged artist.
Adapted from the famous O. Henry story, “The Last Leaf” and set within Vincent van Gogh’s most stunning paintings, Almond Blossoms is a magical reminder of the power of art. When young Marguerite Gachet’s mother falls ill with pneumonia, Vincent helps her weather the storm by introducing her to art and hope.
