A stunningly beautiful way to give and enjoy flowers that never fade away and that will bring joy and a smile any time.
Be it a single delicate bud in a simple clear vase or an explosion of colorful blossoms, a brilliant bouquet accents an atmosphere and brightens the mood like nothing else.
The beauty of flowers has inspired artists, designers, poets, and myriad other creators for centuries: the Dutch masters of the 1600s and impressionist painters from Manet to Van Gogh, photographer Robert Mapplethorpe, botanical illustrator Georg Dionysius Ehret, even the inimitable Andy Warhol.
Flowers: Art & Bouquets showcases a glorious profusion of floral images and interpretations across a spectrum of artistic media and time periods.
Design writer Sixtine Dubly chronicles the evolution of floral design in this remarkable compendium, which also features stunning work by more than forty contemporary floral artists in London, Paris, and New York, from minimalist to elaborate.
This lovely silk hard cover 272-page book has 250 full-color photographs and illustrations.
Flowers: Art & Bouquets is a treasury of gorgeous imagery that blooms in resplendent color before the reader’s eyes!
