Paintings of flowers flourished throughout the Dutch Golden Age, when masters like Jan van Huysum and Rachel Ruysch rendered them with breathtaking accuracy. These original creations acted as status symbols, demonstrating the owner's riches and appreciation for the better things in life in addition to celebrating the beauty of nature.

The way that floral paintings are interpreted has changed along with the art world. With their propensity for capturing transitory moments, the Impressionists painted flowers in dappled sunlight, highlighting the constantly shifting interplay of colours and shadows. This method was used by Claude Monet to create his famous water lily series, in which he turned the ordinary pond into a beautiful kaleidoscope of colours.

Flowers are commonly depicted in artworks for reasons other than their aesthetic appeal. They have served as potent symbols of meaning and emotion throughout time, making them effective art communicators. For instance, lilies are connected to purity and rebirth, while roses have long been used to symbolise love and passion. Painters have expertly incorporated these thoughts into their works of art, utilising flowers as a language to communicate feelings that words might be unable to.

OriginalsĀ also highlight the impermanence of life by serving as a constant reminder of the ephemeral beauty all around us. The blossoms depicted on the artwork endure eternally, defying the normal cycle of cellular growth and decomposition. The viewers are encouraged to pause, reflect, and find solace in the impermanence of existence.
