Have you heard of Finnish master Magnus Enckell (1870-1925)? Hopefully his versatility and expressiveness as an artist will be rediscovered in the 21st century with exhibitions outside his native country (which presently holds important collections of his works) in the near future.
MAY, BEAUTIFUL MAY—A FESTIVAL OF FLOWERS Here’s a festival of flowers for the month of May by a variety of artists: French Impressionists Claude Monet (1840-1926) and Berthe Morisot (1841-1895) plus their fellow countryman Henri Fantin-Latour (1836-1904); American Impressionist Frederick Carl Frieseke (1874-1939); and other 19th century painters such as Danish realist Michael […]

I know little about Nestor Gerans (nationality and dates unknown), except that he lived and worked in the 19th century, while Nakamura Tsune was Japanese, his dates 1887-1924. However, their interpretations of flowers are timeless, each work of art unique in its style and approach to nature.
French Impressionist Claude Monet (1840-1926) was a master of color, particularly in his depiction of flowers like the magical display of chrysanthemums in a multi-colored vase.
