The introduction of varied plant and flower species to France during the 19th century held great significance for French lives. Nothing illustrates this better than the volume of flower paintings produced at the time. Bringing the garden inside as a floral bouquet was a frequent practice of many artists. Included in this journal are 12 brilliant examples of bouquets by artists such as Vincent van Gogh, Auguste Renoir, Claude Monet, Mary Cassatt, and more, all from The Met collection. Each displays the inspiration found in the garden and translated to the interior realms of life.
