Flowers in the Louvre

By Beatrice Vingtrinier. Foreword by Michel Lis.

A colorful promenade through the flower-strewn collection of the Louvre

Featuring floral-inspired works from the Louvre collection, this book offers a novel perspective on the world’s most visited museum. From the noble iris to the humble bloom-filled meadow, flowers are a natural subject for artists, whether painted in nature or carefully arranged in the studio. This book is a colorful promenade through the flower-strewn collection of the Louvre, which includes masterpieces such as Archimboldo’s Spring and Dürer’s Flower. Selected works, encompassing a variety of art forms from paintings and sculpture to tapestries and furniture, demonstrate the continued significance of flowers in art from the ancient Persians to the European masters. This volume includes full-page illustrations and close-up details of fifty works in the museum collection. Designed to help a broad readership discover the world’s greatest art collection, this series presents a selection of well-known and more obscure works from the Louvre. Art lovers will be pleased to discover their favorite works in a new light while flower enthusiasts and historians will be equally enchanted by this collection.


Michel Lis is editor-in-chief of a monthly home and gardening magazine and contributes to Rustica in France, where he is a popular gardening presenter on radio and television. Béatrice Vingtrinier is an art historian and a lecturer at the Louvre.
