Beautiful Paintings of Flowers

Updated on October 12, 2012

Floral Paintings

A

re you seeking some beautiful and relaxing paintings of flowers to enjoy? Look no further! Recently, upon my perusal of Wikimedia Commons, I happened across an entire category devoted to beautiful paintings of flowers. I thought it would be an excellent idea to feature some of them here, in addition to historic information about the paintings and the artists. I hope you enjoy these timeless paintings!

Flowers have been depicted in artwork dating back to the time of the Egyptians. Flowers were painted mainly for symbolic purposes up until the 17th Century, when Dutch flower painting became popular. The Impressionist movement ushered in many floral painters, including Claude Monet. One of the most well-known modern floral painters was Georgia O'Keefe. Needless to say, artists have been showing appreciation for flowers for many centuries!

      These paintings really convey the warmth and relaxed feeling of the countryside. Thank you for sharing such talented works from as early as the 1700's. It's always such an education for me whenever I visit you or raphaelo. Take good care, Rose
