Art History Lecture - Flowers in Art

25th October 2017


Winnington Park Recreation Club
Park Road

Art lecture on Flowers in Art with Adrian Sumner.

From time immemorial, Flowers, Plants and Gardens have been an enduring subject in the Visual Arts. From the Garden of Eden to the Garden of the Hesperides, the Medieval Garden of Love to the Mind-Gardens of Psychedelia, Tulip Mania to Redoute's Roses artists have pushed their skills to the absolute limits in describing the extraordinary richness and diversity of Nature in Bloom. And, of course, Contemporary Artists, building on the great traditions of the Renaissance and many other cultures, make actual Gardens – balancing Colour and Sound, Scent and Touch, Mystery and Imagination. This luxuriantly–illustrated slide lecture offers a tour of Art featuring blooms of all varieties, taking in the language and symbolism of flowers, suitable for all ages and tastes. Wake up and smell the roses!
