FLOWERS: ART & BOUQUETS
Text by Sixtine
Dubly, Foreword by Carlos Mota Flowers are a proud assertion that a ray of beauty out values all the utilities of the world.—Ralph Waldo Emerson
Be it a single delicate bud in a simple clear vase or an explosion of colorful blossoms, a brilliant bouquet accents an atmosphere and brightens the mood like nothing else. The beauty of flowers has inspired artists, designers, poets, and myriad other creators for centuries: the Dutch masters of the 1600s and impressionist painters from Manet to Van Gogh, photographer Robert Mapplethorpe, botanical illustrator Georg Dionysius Ehret, and even the inimitable Andy Warhol. Flowers: Art & Bouquets showcases a glorious profusion of oral images and interpretations across a spectrum of artistic media and time periods. Design writer Sixtine Dubly chronicles the evolution of oral design in this remarkable compendium, which also features stunning work by more than forty contemporary floral artists in London, Paris, and New York, from minimalist to elaborate. This treasury of gorgeous imagery blooms in resplendent color before the reader’s eyes. Originally published in 2016, the re-release of this title includes a brand new cover.
