Bouquet of Flowers, anonymous, 1680

Bouquet of Flowers, anonymous, 1680

parchment (animal material), h 300mm × w 230mm More details

This exquisitely rendered ensemble looks like a just picked field bouquet, but it combines flowers found in the wild, like the violet and the cornflower, with cultivated exotic species, like the red woolflower (Celosia) at the upper right. They do not all bloom at the same time. The blue and white morning glory blossoms in the spring, and the dark purple field scabious only from August.
