The Praise of Spring.  Drawings are vivid and full of emotions. Perhaps the expression of refinements is the life-long goal for every painter. How do painters appreciate springtime?

Let us taste the spring breeze with celebrated painter Vincent Van Gogh.  Van Gogh was born in Netherland and reached his heyday in southern France, Arles.

During his days in Arles, he recorded the natural colors and vitality of Arles in his drawings. This time, we selected three drawings from Van Gogh’s work, they include drawings about peaches, apricots and pears from Arles, matched with three perfumes from France.
