Flower | Exploring the World in Bloom

A comprehensive and sumptuous survey that celebrates the beauty and appeal of flowers throughout art, history, and culture.

Take a journey across continents and cultures to discover the endless ways artists and image-makers have employed floral motifs throughout history. With 316 colour illustrations showcasing the diversity of blooms from all over the world, Flower spans a wide range of styles and media – from art, botanical illustrations, and sculptures to floral arrangements, film stills, and textiles – and follows a visually stunning sequence with works, regardless of period, thoughtfully paired to allow interesting and revealing juxtapositions between them. Flower is follows in the footsteps of Plant: Exploring the Botanical World, which Martha Stewart Living described as “breathtaking.”

Flower | Exploring the World in Bloom. Featuring large-scale images and accessible texts, Flower offers a comprehensive introduction to the subject and includes both much-loved works together with examples that may prove more surprising discoveries, even for specialists. Selected by an international panel of art historians, museum curators, botanists, florists, horticulturalists, and more, works by a diverse range of both lesser-known and iconic artists and image-makers are featured, including: Nobuyoshi Araki, Cecil Beaton, Georg Ehret, David Hockney, Horst P. Horst, Nick Knight, Yayoi Kusama, Leonardo da Vinci, Robert Mapplethorpe, Henri Matisse, Claude Monet, Cedric Morris, William Morris, Georgia O’Keeffe, Irving Penn, Pierre-Joseph Redouté, Rachel Ruysch, Constance Spry, and Flora Starkey.

“A substantial survey of how art and culture have interpreted the floral world.”
