Description  
This reproduction of an 18th century engraving shows a lovely arrangement of flowers in a basket. The arrangement includes tulips, roses and foliage. It is a very romanticised image of the time and only the very wealthy would have been able to afford these flowers in their home. Although the flowers have great detail the picture has a simple care free feel to it because of the relaxed style to the arrangement, the plain background and minimal wooden stand. This allows today’s viewer to imagine this in their own home and reminds them of the joys of picking flowers from the garden and enjoying them within the home environment.
