Florals: A Muse Through the Ages

Skip ahead to the art please!

Like human figures, flowers have been a subject of paintings for as long as humans have been doing them. Across the drastic shifts in style and technique that have occurred through the history of art, florals have remained an inspiration to artists throughout.

What is it about flowers that’s so compelling?  The obvious explanation is that we are drawn to their seemingly “objective” aesthetic beauty. Or, like their primary target (bees), we are attracted to their vibrant colours and wonderful scents. An evolutionary theory suggests that flowers attract humans due to their proximity to fruit. No one really knows, but we know that we love them, and will probably not stop loving them.

Not Just a Pretty Face

Flowers are the ultimate romantic symbol – beautiful, short-lived, whimsical – but they have represented far more than romance in cultural and religious contexts. They can be symbols of innocence, mourning, reproduction, desire… the list goes on.

It seems a reasonable conclusion that the diverse symbolic power across shifting historical contexts, paired with their visual beauty, have caused florals to persist as a muse of creatives for centuries.
