The depiction of flowers in painting

People have depicted flowers and plants as symbols since ancient times. So pictures with lotus flowers in ancient Egypt symbolized the sun, fertility and prosperity. Later, until the end of the monopoly of academism, flowers were not depicted as central objects, but were used as background elements or auxiliary details of the plot. The exception is rare still life paintings of the Renaissance. In the XVIIIth century, with the development of impressionism and romanticism, artists added flowers to their paintings.The appearance of the plein air became a big step. Working outside the workshops, craftsmen were able to better convey the beauty of nature. The series "Water Lilies" by Claude Monet, still lifes by Vincent Van Gogh, pop-art scenes by Andy Warhol deserve special attention.
