Flowers and World Views
The National Gallery of Denmark opens its doors for the exhibition, Flowers and World Views, and presents a parade of two hundred years’ worth of flower paintings. Experience familiar flowers, rare exotic blooms, and decidedly strange plants you have never seen before. All these treasures will be staged as an ideal garden.
Flowers and World Views presents around 300 works, focusing on the varied flower paintings of the 17th and 18th centuries.
It homes in on how the artists’ painstaking depictions of flowers, fruit, and plants have been affected by history and how the genre is always contingent on the prevalent worldviews.
Flowers with a twist
The exhibition at the National Gallery of Denmark delves down into a period where mankind stood on the threshold between a symbolic, metaphorical way of viewing the world and a more stringently scientific approach, shedding light on the impact this transition had on German, Flemish, and Dutch flower painting.
Familiar major works as well as a wide range of paintings that have rarely or never been on display before, are exhibited. Most of the works on display come from the royal collections.
