. Flower art in classical style is characterized by careful draftsmanship and the modeling of forms with subtle changes of light within a carefully constructed composition; narration is of equal importance, often with moral overtones. The viewer is initially drawn to these flower paintings by the way the artists have captured details that the eye does not normally perceive.
When people think of classic flower paintings, Vincent van Gogh is a name that will come up often. He created several paintings in this category, all with different levels of intensity. The best thing about classic flower oil paintings is that they aren’t always perfect, sometimes showing flowers that are on their way to withering away while grouped with blooming flowers. The setup brings a realism to the painting, which is why a lot of still life paintings can be grouped with classical flower paintings. Poppy Flowers is still one of van Gogh’s best, at least one of many in his career. -- The Copyright of Scripts is Reserved by Toperfect.
