Making Modern Flowers: The Path to the Avant-Garde

This talk explores how artists used flowers as a subject to inflect their works with modern meanings. The flower was a valid medium for this as it was a often a metaphor not only for color, that basic tool of the artist, but also of artistic creation, as analogized to nature’s fecundity. Artists discussed will include Delacroix, Manet, van Gogh, and Matisse.

Why did French artists of the 19th century paint flowers? Was it a way for them to respond directly to nature, a connection to artistic tradition, or simply the ideal modernist subject matter, void of narrative? In this lecture, Dr. Heather MacDonald, co-curator of the exhibition “In Bloom: Painting Flowers in the Age of Impressionism,” will discuss the history of flower painting in France and how it became such a vital and innovative practice in the hands of the impressionists and their contemporaries.
