他在给他弟弟提奥的信中说，他被这个消息所感动和影响，”我在我的画作《莫夫的回忆》（Souvenir de Mauve Vincent & Theo）上写道，如果你觉得它现在的样子不错，我们会以我们俩的名义把它寄给莫夫夫人。(……)在我看来，为了纪念莫夫，我们需要一些既温柔又非常欢快的东西，而不是一个比这更严肃的研究。
Blossoming fruit trees
When the fruit trees in Arles are in bloom in the spring of 1888, Van Gogh paints them nearly every day. Thus, in a short period he produces fourteen paintings and several drawings and sketches of the blossoming trees. He considers Pink peach trees one of the most successful in the series.
In the evening of the day on which Van Gogh makes this painting, he finds a letter from his sister, who writes to tell him that Anton Mauve has died. This painter was not only his cousin by marriage; he also taught him to paint in oils and watercolour. Van Gogh decides to dedicate the work to him.
Tender and cheerful
He writes to his brother Theo that he was moved and affected by the news, ‘and I wrote on my painting Souvenir de Mauve Vincent & Theo and if you think it’s good as it stands we’ll send it to Mrs Mauve in both our names. (…) It seemed to me that in memory of Mauve we needed something that was both tender and very cheerful and not a study in a more serious key than that’.
