about this painting:
SO FRESH AND LOVELY
There is hardly any person in the world who does not think that flowers are beautiful and satisfying to look at. Many people even start to grow them themselves, since this hobby is very peaceful and also brings good results.
All the talented artists painted wonderful still lives with flowers at least once in their career. A fascinating play of color on semi-transparent petals inspires and challenged a gifted brush. Let us have a look at some famous floral still lives from the history of art.
GREAT EXAMPLES OF FLORAL ART
- “Still-Life of Flowers”, Ambrosius Bosschaert the Elder
This famous representative of the Dutch Golden Age is one of the first artists in the world who actually started the genre of floral still-lives. On canvas, you can see a bunch of flowers and some insects like butterflies and bees whose life is short and quick to end. It makes us reflect on the concept of “capre diem”.
High artistic merit of this painting is undoubtable. Preciseness and carefully chosen blue and white accents make this artwork the best example of Flemish still lives.
- “Sunflowers”, Vincent Van Gogh
Van Gogh was, probably, the most talented artist of the 19th century. His talent laid into being able to see and feel the world in a way that nobody else could. He painted a whole series of bright yellow sunflowers. Usually, yellow color and sunflowers are associated with joy, sun and happy life. However, for some reason, when we look at Van Gogh’s paintings, it is not what we feel. How is that?
If you know at least something about Van Gogh’s life, you are, most likely, aware of the fact that his life was extremely far from being easy and that success came to him only after his death. Most of his life he was facing solitude and disappointment. These unpleasantly yellow paintings of flowers should cause discomfort and distress when you look at them.
- “Rose For”, Leonid Afremov
Leonid Afremov has become quite an important figure in contemporary art during the past 20 years. His creations enjoy a certain popularity thanks to the bright colors and agile technique of their application. The composition of his paintings is really simple, and usually his art does not conceal any secret meaning. This is a plus for many fans of Afremov’s art who are tired from constant flow of information from media and social networks.
A pretty rose bouquet can be seen at this painting. Seven roses are standing in a beautiful vase on the table. We are not given any details about this room or who put these flowers there. The only thing that we understand is that this pretty composition attracted the artist’s attention and he decided to share its beauty with his fans by creating a pretty painting.
