BLOSSOM

Written by Schudel, Anna Halm
Flowers are a perennially popular motif throughout art history. And for good reason: Lush with texture and color, a living bouquet of blooms can be made to communicate much through the masterly brushstrokes of Vincent Van Gogh or Georgia O'Keeffe, in the hands of a skilled ikebana artist or through the lens of contemporary photography.

BOUQUETS OF CHENONCEAU

Written by Boucher, Jean-Francois
The impressive Château de Chenonceau is the jewel of the French Loire Valley. The fairytale type castle has had a particulary rich history and has always been inhabited and curated by intelligent, strong-willed women such as Catherine Briçonnet, Diane de Potiers, Catherine de Medici and Louise de Lorraine ­- hence its nickname ‘Ladies' Castle'. Through the ages the spaces have been imprinted with the souls of those who built, inhabited and loved the castle. Every part of Chenonceau's interior and exterior – not in the least the castle's impressive gardens – exudes peace, harmony and elegance. Since 2015 Jean-Francois Boucher has been appointed floral scenographer of the estate. Together with his small team he creates new floral compositions for the castle's rooms every week. These ‘staged' flowers emphasize the history of the estate just like any other piece of art or furniture does. Their designs blend in perfectly with the interiors and are in beautiful harmony with the room's colour codes, perfumes and functions. Sometimes they even wink at poetry, art or the historical events that took place in these spaces. The Bouquets of Chenonceau is a magnificent coffee table book that will please both lovers of history and fans of floral design.The impressive Château de Chenonceau is the jewel of the French Loire Valley.

JEAN-MICHEL OTHONIEL: THE SECRET LANGUAGE OF FLOWERS: NOTES ON THE HIDDEN MEANINGS OF THE LOUVRE'S FLOWERS

To celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Louvre pyramid, French artist Jean-Michel Othoniel was invited to create a work about the presence of flowers in the museum's eight art departments. Visiting the Louvre’s collections of paintings, drawings, sculptures, embroidery and enamel, the artist photographed the flowers that appeared there. Using these images, Othoniel composed his own original herbarium, accompanied with notes on the secret language of flowers and their symbolism in the history of art. Among the 70 flowers Othoniel compiled in this volume, you will find the thistle in Dürer's self-portrait, the poppy in the Paros funerary stele, the apple sitting on a stool in The Lock by Fragonard and the peony attached to the unfastened blouse of the young woman in Greuze's Broken Pitcher. Also included are lesser-known details in lesser-known works―concealed treasures, hiding in plain sight at the museum. Following a similar format to Othoniel’s previous book about flowers, this volume intersperses photographs and drawings with short texts in a luxurious, eminently giftable book. Once an attendant at the Louvre while studying at the École des Beaux-Arts, Othoniel returns to his artistic roots in this volume to offer a personal, poetic look at the artistic wonders of the greatest museum in the world. An intimate herbarium of flowers in the collection of the Louvre
