Description

A remarkable new book providing unique insight into Tate's collection through the depiction of plants and flowers

With their delightful colors, incredible natural beauty, and fascinating "otherness," it is no surprise that flowers and plants have long captivated artists. They have come to symbolize a gamut of complex human emotions, including hope, delight, love, compassion, gratitude, grief, and loss. The fragility of flowers is a poignant reminder of the fleeting nature of life. Their sensory appeal to our sight, smell, touch and even, sometimes, taste brings us into the present moment, and they can affect our well-being in surprisingly healing ways. Bloom is a compendium of 100 of the most beautiful floral works from Tate's collection. Designed to encourage slow, mindful looking, it will bring reflection, restoration, and joy.
