Van Gogh "Almond Blossom" Scarf
Price: $48.00 Members: $43.20
Van Gogh Almond Blossom Scarf
The floral print on this flowing, sheer blue scarf is inspired by Vincent van Gogh’s 1890 Impressionist painting, Almond Blossom, which itself reflected the influence on the artist by Japanese woodcuts. Soft and supple, made of 100% polyester, the scarf measures 19" wide by 72" long.
The motif is reminiscent of the Japanese prints used in the costumes of the Met’s production of Puccini’s Madama Butterfly.

World premiere: Teatro alla Scala, Milan, 1926.
Puccini’s final opera is an epic fairy tale set in a China of legend, loosely based on a play by 18th-century Italian dramatist Carlo Gozzi.
Featuring a most unusual score with an astounding and innovative use of chorus and orchestra, it is still recognizably Puccini, bursting with instantly appealing melody. The unenviable task of completing the opera’s final scene upon Puccini’s sudden death was left to the composer Franco Alfano. Conductor Arturo Toscanini oversaw Alfano’s contribution and led the world premiere.
