Cherry blossoms by P.C. van Aalst. 

A lovely natural painting of flowering Prunus twigs or cherry blossoms, in a vase.
This painting is awesome in real life, the pictures don’t do it justice.
A lovely color combination between the soft green and the lovely pink flowers that gently hints to the influence of the painter by the Asian art and culture. This work also reminds me a lot of other Dutch artists like Jan Mankes, who also featured soft colors and used soft brush strokes in his work. Maybe this piece is an homage or a metaphor for new beginnings in the pre war West-European society?
Not much is know about the artist, P. C. van Aalst. The painting was made in 1949 and has a very robust, broad frame that contrasts nicely with the inner fragile painting. It is in good used condition, the painting has some light yellowing that is normal for older paintings. It is signed, P.C. van Aalst in the left lower corner.
The canvas measures ca. 37 x 26 cm and the frame measures 58,5 cm by 48,5 cm. Hanging garments are in place, so this work of art is ready to decorate any wall.
