In Bloom, van Dongen has captured the rich color, exquisite detail, and sensual form of flowers from around the world. While van Dogen has been long celebrated for his black-and-white floral still lifes, this is his first collection in color. From the palest powder pink of Helleborus x hybridus to the wine-dark Papaver 'Black Cloud,' van Dongen creates images, intense and elegant, that mirror the beauty of Nature herself.
