Words of flowers, paintings of flowers – about paintings that depict the meaning of things

 Many cultures around the world have a tradition of using plants to carry symbolic meanings.

 People give bouquets of flowers to congratulate people when they have something to celebrate, and when someone dies, they send flowers to see them off. In this way, people have lived with flowers as more than just a plant.

 The language of flowers is a perfect example of how people have found meaning in flowers. Although the origins of this practice remain unclear, it is said that the practice of using the language of flowers, as we know it today, became popular in 19th century Western society. Against this backdrop, the first dictionary of the language of flowers, “The Language of Flowers” by Charlotte de Latour, was published around 1819.

 In “The Language of Flowers,” Latour devised and introduced the language of flowers according to the number of flowers as well as the color, and roses in particular were given special treatment. Roses are one of the flowers that have been given such importance in Western culture that they have been called “the flower among flowers,” and they have already been given meanings derived from folklore and mythology.

 In this article, I would like to introduce paintings of roses, the “flower within a flower,” which attracts the hearts of many people in the East and West, along with the language of flowers.
