Flower Painting by the Great Masters / Margaret Fairbanks Marcus

Flower painting by the great masters is stunningly represented in this book. In addition to the more than thirty pages of paintings reproduced in full color there are over twenty pages of black-and-white illustrations of the work of artists as removed in distance as the Oriental and as near in time as Dufy and Picasso. Margaret Fairbanks Marcus of the Cleveland Museum of Art—she is an authority on flowers and flower arrangement as well as an art historian — has written the accompanying text which will help to make this little volume equally irresistible to lovers of art and lovers of gardens.

The Pocket Library of Great Art will ultimately constitute the most remarkable collection of art-in-reproduction ever published. Each new volume, as it presents the life-enriching values which art can give, will bring you closer to that comprehensive knowledge of the great masters which all cultured people would like to have.

The Cleveland Museum of Art

The first known flower subjects appeared on the walls of Egyptian tombs some 5000 years ago. Ever since then the genre of flower painting has been a hardy perennial—a source of inspiration for countless generations of artists and a source of delight for all. Botticelli and other Renaissance artists reserved some of their most exquisite touches for floral details. With the seventeenth-century Dutch and Flemish painters flower painting came into its own as a separate and distinct type.

In this volume the great tradition of flower painting is richly represented and brought up to date with recent examples that present a surprising variety of moods and styles: Renoir’s voluptuous riot of irises, lilacs, and pinks; Redon’s papery, delicate blossoms in pastel; Cézanne’s unadorned, architectonic tulips; Van Gogh’s emotionally charged blooms, and many other full color reproductions of modern flower masterpieces. Lovely flower drawings by Oriental as well as Western artists supplement this stunning collection.
