It’s summer and that means everything is blooming.
It’s the perfect time to have a chat about botanicals.
Botanicals have been a popular art subject for centuries. Did you know they have found a 15th Century BC stone frieze depicting 275 plants in the tomb of Thutmose III in Karnak, Egypt? According to the American Society of Botanical Artists, “This may be the earliest example of representational, accurate botanical art as we know it today.
Today’s artists continue to produce beautiful botanicals with fresh new looks combined with the vintage tradition that has made botanicals such a mainstay in the home. Pretty and feminine, they bring the beauty of nature indoors, reminding us to take a moment to stop and appreciate the peacefulness of nature. And who doesn’t need that reminder these days!
