Description
The popular fascination with luxurious cut flowers and the cultivation of rare plants excited the imagination of Dutch artists in the 17th century. During this golden age of botanical art, artists such as Pieter Withoos emphasized aesthetic value in flower paintings destined for the walls of wealthy patrons, and scientific record in drawings that documented physical details for plant identification. Such latter works of art were prized for accuracy and illustrative grace, and were often included in printed herbals and, later, in florilegia—lavishly illustrated anthologies of literary flora. The two long-stemmed poppies featured in this notecard folio are of a time, but also strikingly modern in their perspective.

Contains five each of the following notecards:
