Plants in different cultures are valued for their medicinal properties, symbolism, and beauty. The beauty of plant life is something artists have explored for millennia. From still life images to scientific depictions to abstract or surreal interpretations, the works in Flora show the diverse ways artists have approached botanical materials as subjects. Works include prints and photographs spanning the latter half of the twentieth century. Works by Betty Hahn, Gustave Baumann, Walter Chappell, Karsten Creightney, and Enrique Martínez Celaya and more show how plants carry different meanings and resonances.
