On Exhibit: A World Tour of Antique Floral Prints May 13 to June 14

antique printDelicate images of unusual flowers from late 19th century India to Flemish etching and engravings of floral arrangements from the mid-17th century, this collection of hand colored and painted botanical prints provides a wonderful view of flowers through time and place. Rich woodblock prints of poppies and camellia, from 1920s Japan are complemented by the softness of a British hand colored etching of flowers in a vase from the same era. Detailed studies include an engraving of 8 different anemones from 1612, a trio of iris prints from 1804, and a small painting of tulips from the late 19th century. This is a well curated grouping of prints that work splendidly together while each one can still stand out on its own.
