During the spring of 1888, van Gogh painted at least 15 vibrantly coloured paintings of orchards in blossom. While still working on them, he had the idea to group the canvases into aesthetic combinations. From Arles, Van Gogh wrote about this work: 'I now also have a small pear tree, vertical, also flanked by two other horizontal canvases.' See letter to Theo van Gogh, 13 April 1888.
