Flowers are everywhere in Renaissance art, from the roses strewn across Botticelli's Venus Rising to the daffodils in Leonardo's Virgin of the Rocks. Beyond their evident beauty, why are they there, and what do they mean? The horticulturalist and art historian Celia Fisher unravels the artistic symbolism of 20 flowers – among them, lilies, tulips, poppies and columbines – in a highly original and superbly illustrated study that sheds new light on the art of the period.
