More Description

Art of the Bouquet: Impressionist Flowers is a magnificent explosion of color on the printed page. Between its covers is the loveliest of gardens: a gathering of the sensuous bouquet still lifes of the greatest French nineteenth-century painters, including Monet, Manet, Renoir, Cezanne, van Gogh, and Matisse. Encompassing both the predecessors and the immediate followers of the world's most popular group of painters, this volume collects bouquets of every season and every tone, ranging from the delicate pastels of columbines and peonies to the saturated reds and yellows of dahlias and zinnias. Drawn from public and private collections around the world, these splendid paintings are seen together for the first time in this book. Richard Whelan's introductory essay sets these works in their art-historical context, while a garden expert identifies the flowers depicted in each bouquet. Impressionist Flowers holds special appeal for art lovers, gardeners, and city dwellers who long to be gardeners.
