A History of Flower Arrangement

Price £20.00

Widely regarded as the standard work on its subject and as essential reading for every serious student of the art of flower arrangement, this fully illustrated survey not only provides flower arrangers (amateur or professional) with an invaluable source of inspiration and reference; it also enables them to study the different principles of design which have prevailed in the East and West down the ages, from the time of ancient Egypt until the present day. Special emphasis is placed on influences on contemporary practice, such as Dutch and Flemish flower painting, seventeenth and eighteenth-century French floral decoration, Victorian bouquets and the flower art of Japan. In other chapters Mrs. Berrall discusses flower arrangement during the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, in England and China and later in Colonial America. The story is closely linked with the evolution of garden design, with general developments in culture and taste, and (most importantly) with! the decorative function of flowers in the home throughout history. A valuable feature is the inclusion of lists of those flowers, which were particularly favoured during each period.
