Description

Flowers are the centerpiece in the majority of pictorial still-lifes. By painting their colours and forms, artists from Brueghel to O’Keeffe have created symbols for both life and mortality. Van Gogh’s sunflowers, Monet’s water lilies and Matisse’s bouquets are, of course, unforgotten. Most of the works contained in Flowers are true masterpieces, which have often marked whole epochs and styles.

“When you take a flower in your hand and really look at it, it is your world for a moment. I want to give that world to someone else. Most people in the city rush around so they have no time to look at a flower. I want them to see it whether they want it or not.”
– Georgia O'Keeffe

dam and Eve have already been A expelled from the Garden of Eden, a miraculous place where the plant life is balanced, and flowers abound… The craftsmen of the Nile valley already delight in painting papyrus and lotus on the walls of tombs… the ultimate statements of their love of the good life. The Cretan ceramists are already painting crocuses or other flowers on vases. According to Pliny, pictures of flowers have been painted since the time of Alexander.

In the Middle Ages, the Dominican Albert the Great devoted a chapter toDe plantatione viridarium,in his “Treatise on Plants”. Tapestries with the thousand flowers of the hanging of the unicorn show lilies, roses, carnations, irises… Herbs and flowers deco-rate royal dwellings, while flowers are used in ceremonies and religious processions. In a representational work, the artist searches for a compromise between imitation and the expression of his thought.
