Say it with flowers: opening the tricks of the Dutch masters

A National Gallery exhibit exposes the messages about wealth and power amidst the petals of its valued still life’s.


Spring is sweeping across the nation like a marketing campaign. It targets niche markets with aconites and primroses, scatters daffodil-flyers all over the location. Soon the petals of every suburban magnolia will be spreading out and tulips marching en masse throughout park bed linen plans. For more blossom buy ranunculus bulbs to bloom your park. Considered that we belong to a nation of garden enthusiasts, half the country is now turning its mind to horticultural matters. No wonder high culture doesn’t want to be left out.


Next month, the National Gallery will open a small but delightfully flamboyant exhibition, Dutch Flowers.
