Flowers

Since ancient times, flowers have been associated with the idea of the fragile and brief nature of life and beauty, both of which are ephemeral and destined to fade. Appearing in still lifes in Northern art in the 17th century, flowers often reflect Christian symbolism (The Virgin of the Lilies). In the 19th century, representations of flowers became more and more realistic and decorative (African Woman with Peonies).
