About

 

An Image from a series of delightful prints illustrating flowers personified in the form of lovely maidens and their animal retinues. Each early 19th-century female figure is richly costumed in the leaves, blossoms, and garlands that designate her flower. She presides in an appropriate 'natural' setting, often surrounded by anthropomorphized insects and birds that pay her homage. These poetic interpretations of nature are a fetching example of early 19th-century literary and artistic invention. Their charm, as well as their mischievousness, bespeak the Victorian fascination with an animated and psychologically fertile natural world.
