Description
Exploring the relationship between horticulture and art, this compact art book traces the development of Primula auricula, Hippeastrum, Fritillaria, Nerine, Narcissus, Camellia, Dahlia, Tulipa, Rosa, Helleborus, Dianthus (carnation), Iris, Paeonia (peony), and Nelumbo (water lily) through their popular depictions on paper or canvas over the centuries. Each chapter provides a botanical and artistic history of the plant, with lively anecdotal information and an illustration—discussed in the text—that may have historically improved the plant's appeal. Here too are cultivation notes for each species or genera, and the sensuous photography of Sabina Rüber.
