The Still-life with the flowers

The theme of flowers in arts and in the real life is very special. The flowers follow a person during the whole life. There are many traditions, rituals and historical legends connected with them. Every flower has its own legend and symbolizes something very important for a person. The flowers are also very special in painting because nothing else has so wide palette of colors and shades, beginning with the extremely bright and up to the tender pastel. The bouquets consisting of several different flowers give many opportunities for creation. Interest to this theme in painting appeared in Europe in the 15th century. The artists composed bouquets from the flowers being brought from all over the world, e.g. from India, Asia and the New World. Artists were honored as the botanists or the flower experts.

Eventually the interest to general still-lives appeared and the still-lives with flowers gained the legitimate popularity. The artists of this direction were called “the mannerist” and they were working in botanical gardens choosing the compositions themselves. Later the impressionists also became interested in the theme of still-life. There are very famous works by Gog, Gauguin, Cezanne, Renoir and Manet.
