Ron Van Dongen

"Bloom"

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.
