Whether it's a single delicate bud in a simple clear vase or an explosion of colorful flowers, a bright bouquet accentuates an atmosphere and brightens the atmosphere like nothing else. The beauty of flowers has inspired artists, designers, poets and a myriad of other creators for centuries: the Dutch masters of the 1600s and the impressionist painters from Manet to Van Gogh, photographer Robert Mapplethorpe, botanical illustrator Georg Dionysius Ehret, even the inimitable Andy Warhol. Flowers: Art & Bouquets presents a glorious profusion of floral images and interpretations across a range of artistic media and periods. The design writer Sixtine Dubly recounts the evolution of floral design in this remarkable collection, which also presents the astonishing work of more than forty contemporary floral artists in London, Paris and New York, from minimalist to refined. This treasure trove of magnificent images flourishes in resplendent colors before the reader's eyes.
