About 2 weeks ago On or about 12 July 1885 Vincent wrote to his brother Theo that he wanted to send him several paintings of cottages in the middle of the heath.

Van Gogh was fascinated by these peasant dwellings, which he called ‘human nests’. The cottage in this painting, with its double front doors and split chimney, actually housed two families. One of them was the De Groots, who posed for ‘The Potato Eaters’.

About 3 days ago On 26 July 1882, Vincent van Gogh wrote to his brother Theo: 

“I saw a dead pollard willow there. It hung over a pond with reeds, all alone and melancholy, and its bark was scaled and mossy, as it were, and spotted and marbled in various tones — something like the skin of a snake, greenish, yellowish, mostly dull black. With white flaking spots and stumpy branches. I’m going to attack it tomorrow morning.”

About 9 weeks ago On the 24th of May 1890 Vincent wrote to his brother Theo: “Often, very often, I think of my little nephew – is he well?” Referring to Vincent Willem who was born a few months earlier. After the birth of his nephew Van Gogh painted ‘Almond Blossom’ as a gift to Theo and his wife Jo.
