Flowers in the Louvre
A beautifully illustrated book with paintings of flowers from the collection of the Louvre in Paris
From the noble iris to the humble bloom-filled meadow, flowers are a natural subject for artists, whether painted in nature or carefully arranged in the studio. This book is a colourful promenade through the flower-strewn collection of the Louvre, which includes masterpieces such as Archimboldo’s Spring and Dürer’s Flower.
Selected works, encompassing a variety of art forms from paintings and sculpture to tapestries and furniture, demonstrate the continued significance of flowers in art from the ancient Persians to the European masters. This volume includes full-page illustrations and close-up details of fifty works in the museum collection.
