Floral Still Life

Sunday afternoon, oil on canvas, 40x50cm, Oct.2014, YEJI KIM

"The eye must be taught to look at nature, 
Jean-Siméon Chardin, lecure to the Aademy, 1765"

Currently I am reading Working Among Flowers: Floral Still-Life Painting in 19th-Century FranceA beautiful book composed of essays that give an insight into the emerging dialogue between the floral still life, botanical illustration, and models of science; the critical context for instruction in and reception of flower painting; the misunderstood relationship between avant-garde flower painting and the market; the cultural meanings of the vases and ceramic vessels depicted by painters; and the literary context for flower painting.

This artwork is available on my website or on Saatchi Art or on Creative Debuts.
