How still life floral paintings have always captured the imagination of painters and patrons alike.

Throughout the history of art, there has remained an enduring appeal in still life floral paintings, since those very first representations of lotus flowers by the Ancient Egyptians thousands of years ago. Over the centuries, and throughout all the major periods in art, flowers have been represented by everyone from Botticelli and Klimt, Monet and Van Gogh and artists like Georgia O’Keefe who established a career with florals as her primary subject matter.
