The Flowering Apple Tree, probably done in the spring of 1912, was shown in October and November of that year at the second exhibition of the Moderne Kunstkring in Amsterdam, together with the Still Life with Gingerpot II. The two paintings represent the same phase in Mondrian's development. Like the second version of the still life, the Flowering Apple Tree painting has discarded the descriptive function of the pictorial language and been transmuted entirely into the poetic forms of "visual rhyme" and "optical alliteration." The forms of the tree have lost all thing - value and are transposed into rhythmic accents in the composition as a whole.
