Paintings "Flowers"

Floral painting, also known as flower pieces, belongs to still life painting. In its perfect imitation of reality and magnificent representation, baroque flower pieces were a reflection of the prosperity and splendor of Dutch society of the past. The choice of flowers depicted and compositions of bouquets with various flowers also portray, apart from aesthetic and representational depiction, the symbolic meaning of vanitas, withering and transience.
