Courbet Branch of Apple Blossoms t-shirt. Oil painting on canvas from 1871. French realist painter Gustave Courbet enthusiastically tackled a wide variety of genres within his oeuvre, flower painting was no exception. Branch of Apple Blossoms is perhaps Courbet’s most beautiful floral work, featuring a rustic and gorgeous sprig of apple blossoms. While some of the buds have opened into white maturity, others remain closed and dark red, glowing amongst the green leaves of the branch. A beautiful gift for fans of Gustave Courbet, realism, apple blossom paintings, and French art.
