Description

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


The latest installment in the bestselling Explorer Series takes readers on a journey across continents and cultures to discover the endless ways artists and image-makers have employed floral motifs throughout history.


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.
