Flowers in Art

“When you take a flower in your hand and really look at it, it’s your world for the moment,” Georgia O’Keeffe once said. From O’Keeffe to Andy Warhol, artists throughout art history have gravitated toward flowers, drawn to their aesthetic beauty and rich symbolism. In paintings, a single flower can represent reproduction or decay, purity or promiscuity, love or hardship—or nothing more than a pile of petals. Below, discover fresh bouquets to bring into your home, from Salvador Dalí’s surrealist blooms to Takashi Murakami’s smiling daisies.
