Inspiration from the Masters

Henri Fantin Latour was a French realist painter and lithographer who worked and lived in the mid to late 1800s. 

Floral inspiration comes from everywhere. Many designers working today look at trends and traditions in historical periods of floral design from structured to natural and in between. Paintings can also be a good source of inspiration and depiction of how flowers were arranged and displayed. Here are two of our favorite painters who focused on florals at some point in their career...

Cy Twombly is known for his large scale abstract paintings. Repetitive mark making builds up the surface and imagery within the painting. Twombly took these incredible photos which he referenced in his peony paintings and other floral studies.
