It’s spring, the sun is out (at least as I am writing this), there is blossom on the trees, and the end of lockdown is visible. And I was thinking of paintings of springtime. So, here is a selection, from Japanese and Western traditions, and more contemporary works.

Vincent van Gogh, Almond Blossom


Phil Greenwood, Blossom


Reiji Hiramatsu, Cherry Blossoms
