Flowers, Italy exhibits the fanciful exoticism and highly decorative, stylized exuberance typical of Joseph Stella's work. Stella had been painting florals and images of aquatic life and jungle foliage since the late 1910s. Drawing upon highly personal symbolism, Stella portrays a kind of edenic floral Golden Age, which in its hieratic arrangement becomes a surreal Neo-symbolist icon.
Commemorate your visit to Phoenix Art Museum by being reminded of the beauty of Joseph Stella's work every time you open your current read.
