Blooming Marvels - Flowers in Art by Adrian Sumner

Throughout history the language of flowers has fascinated and beguiled us, and artists most of all. This lecture looks at the art of flowers, in landscape and in vases, from Ancient Rome to Modern-day Kew, taking in the Tulip Madness of the Dutch Golden Age, Monet’s paintings of his famous garden at Giverny, Art Nouveau’s obsession with poppy, convolvulus, and sunflower, William Morris’ endless invention in textile, wallpaper and print, Redoute’s Roses, plus a wealth of botanical illustrations to suit all tastes.
