The history of depicting flowers

Flowers has always been a part of cultural life. In Ancient Rome there was a festival dedicated to goddess Flora when men and women took part in athletic competitions, and the winners received flower wreaths. The rose was a cult flower of that time.

Though flowers has always been a part of various pictures, they started to play a leading role and be displayed themselves in 17th-19th century. At that time they could be found not only on still life paintings but as a part of interior design, costumes, fabrics, accessories etc. Later Impressionists started drawing flowers, and now floral artworks can be found within all styles and art movements.

Botanical illustrations can also be considered as floral art. Painted mostly with watercolour paints, they required from the painter a really high technique to depict all the details of a plant at the times when photography didn't exist. One of the famous botanical illustrators is Pierre-Joseph Redoute, a botanist from the Netherlands who painted over 1800 pictures of various species and was called “the Raphael of flowers”.

Symbolism of flowers in art

During the Middle Ages and early Renaissance flowers and plants had an important symbolic message:

Sometimes flowers become a symbol of particular artists — think about Monet's water lilies or Van Gogh's famous sunflowers.
