Messengers of spring
We admire their bright colors and tender petals each spring. We can’t get enough of their sweet odor that sends our head spinning. We give them to those we love as a sign of our feelings. Each flower is uniquely adorable and one of a kind, even if it is just a tiny star in a cluster of lilacs. No wonder artists of all times have tried to immortalize their perishable beauty on canvas. This lovely bunch of humble wild flowers will never wither. Year after year, they will bloom on your wall just as fresh and beautiful as they were the day Leonid Afremov put them in a vase and made the first stroke on an empty canvas.
Language of flowers
From ancient times, flowers have been imbued with a symbolic meaning that plays an important part in creating floristic compositions and flower paintings:
- Roses are associated with love and passion.
- Lilies are a symbol of innocence and purity.
- Tulips embody love at first sight.
- Lilacs give you a dreamy, romantic mood.
- Daisies symbolize humbleness and plain joys of life.
This exquisite still life shows us a bunch of delicate white daisies still wet with morning dew. They are clearly central in the composition. Although there are other flowers in the vase as well, we can’t say which exactly. The artist painted them in specks of pink, violet and blue, so all we see is a fragrant cloud of color hovering in midair. The absence of distinct outlines turns the scene into a sweet daydream, half real half knit by our imagination from recent impressions and distant memories. Painted in warm sepia shades, the background brings up the image of a cozy parlor filled with the flickering light of an oil lamp and the drowsy ticking of the old clock. Silence and reverie slowly absorb every meter of the room turning everything into a swarm of golden shadows. And the daisies are dissolving into fragrant molecules as your lids grow heavier and you slip into soft slumber...
