A graduate of the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris, acclaimed artist and illustrator Victor Perard emigrated to the United States in the 1930s and taught at New York City's Cooper Union for 20 years. His popular series of guides continues to assist students and teachers today. In this volume, dozens of black-and-white illustrations are accompanied by text that offers background on the blossoms' origins, colors, and symbolism. Perard shows how a variety of lines can add texture, light, and movement to images of violets, daisies, daffodils, lilacs, and other garden favorites. With a natural affinity for flowers of every kind, Perard reveals the rewards of this artistic effort — the development of a sense of composition and an eye for balance in design. Includes a list of state flowers.
