This text brings together a wide variety of illustrations of the cut flower in the history of European fine and decorative art since 1500. It explains their symbolic meanings and demonstrates the response that flowers evoke in us all. The representation of non-European traditions, such as those of China, Japan and the Indian sub-continent, enriches the visual material and illustrates the differences between faiths and cultures. A series of thematic chapters follow a broadly chronological arrangement of works of fine and decorative art, manuscripts and books. The early symbolism and mythologies associated with flowers are illustrated through detailed medieval manuscripts. Illustrations of paintings, textiles, furniture, silver, and ceramics focus on individual flowers through the course of the book.
