A fascinating journey through the visual portrayal of spring in Western art
This lovely gift book presents some of the most beautiful, transformative, and amusing expressions of spring pulled from the renowned collections of Tate, London. Divided into key themes—“Blossom and Blooms,” “Into the Landscape,” “In the Garden,” “Agriculture,” “Rebirth,” and “Uprising”—this book considers how the traditional season of growth and rebirth has influenced artists over centuries. Paintings, drawings, sculptures, illustrations, and installations are accompanied by brief captions adding background detail or additional information about the art, the artists, and their subjects.
