Forests and Flowers: Works of Nature by Lieder, Dehn, and Mairs
A collection of artwork by Cecilia Lieder, Adolf Dehn, and Clara Gardner Mairs. More specifically, this collection is intended to establish a common thread between the works of Lieder, Dehn, and Mairs by displaying pieces that depict an overall theme of flowers or nature. The works of Adolf Dehn and Clara Gardner Mairs have been well-covered previously, but this digital collection strives to bring attention to certain pieces from these artists that may not be featured as often as others and relate to nature.
Flowers and Nature in Art
For as long as humans have existed, we have created art. And for as long as we have created art, we have been creating art depicting nature. From cave paintings of buffalo hunts to Van Gogh’s infamous depiction of the view from his asylum room at Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, we have always had the desire to cherish moments of our lives by preserving them within the long-lasting medium of the creative arts.
This exhibit intends to highlight an infinitely small number of those nature pieces created by humankind. From woodprints to ceramics to lithographs, this exhibit showcases the various mediums in which nature’s beauty can be displayed in a digital form. Each page highlights a different creator, their preferred medium, and their depictions of the nature environment in which they surrounded themselves.
