Book of the Flower, The

Author: Hyland, Angus and Wilson, Kendra

Description: `Art is the flower, life is the green leaf' - Charles Rennie Mackintosh. Haphazard bunches, formal bouquets, chance arrangements, quiet and thoughtful rural encounters - The Book of the Flower is a sylvan collection of beautiful depictions of flowers by artists, photographers and illustrators. Interspersed through the illustrations are short texts about the artists and their interest in particular flowers, from Georgia O'Keeffe's sumptuous close-ups of Jimson Weed and cactus flowers to Matisse's roses, Keika Hasegawa's chrysanthemums and Albert York's close study of zinnias. A wonderful collection for art-lovers, gardeners and flower-fanciers.
