Event Description

Meet the Author of Art in Flower: Finding Inspiration in Art and Nature, Lindsey Taylor, at this informative and lively book talk! She will also be available after the presentation for a book signing!

Art in Flower: Finding Inspiration in Art and Nature introduces readers to a unique practice that combines art and flowers—ultimately offering a new way to look at the natural world. Based on her popular and long-running Wall Street Journal column Flower School, floral and garden designer Lindsey Taylor translates the palettes, compositions, brushstrokes, and mood of works of art into floral arrangements, from the vibrant orange and yellow impasto of a Van Gogh to the monumentality and rusted but velvety-looking surfaces of a Serra sculpture. 

Organized by season, Art in Flower features forty works by an extraordinary group of artists across a diverse range of mediums, periods, and styles, from eighteenth-century Indian paintings and nineteenth-century Japanese prints to American landscapes, Impressionist masterpieces, and contemporary works. In short texts accompanying each artwork-floral arrangement pair, Taylor walks readers through her process of interpreting the art with flowers and foliage. The stunning but achievable results are then revealed, alongside a list of the flowers used to make the arrangement.

Lindsey Taylor is the founder of Lindsey Taylor Design, which creates gardens and landscapes for public and private clients throughout the Northeast. Taylor is a former garden editor at Martha Stewart Living, Domino, and Garden Design magazines and her work has appeared in the New York Times, T Magazine, the Wall Street Journal, and Gardenista. For nearly a decade, she produced, wrote, and styled the Journal’s well-loved Flower School column in its Off Duty section.
