Description
From the pinks in a pot above Crivelli's Madonna of the Swallow and the roses scattered across Botticelli's Primavera to the columbines in the borders of many a 15th-century manuscript, flowers appear to be everywhere in Renaissance art, and here an art historian and botanist explores their inspiration and importance. Celia Fisher, a specialist in the history of plants in art (who now identifies flowers in artworks for galleries and art historians), profiles 20 favorite plants and their appearances in outstanding works of art, seen in reproductions and detail views up to 22 x 11 inches. She explains their often meticulous depictions and the associated meanings that their contemporary viewers would have understood.
