Floral Alchemy 1928
This exquisite French block print from 1928 depicts a burst of vibrant petals in a floral arrangement. The radiant star-shaped flowers are scattered throughout the print, featuring clusters of pearly daisies, flushed poppies, and blue cornflowers. These flowers symbolise the inner garden of the soul, representing the harmonisation of feminine and masculine principles within the physical and psychic realms of the Alchemical process.
The Romantic era, known for its focus on emotions and spiritually-inspired art, gave rise to a carefree and loosely structured artistic style that was deeply influenced by imagination.
’There is a flower within my heart
Planted one day by a glancing dart
Planted by Daisy Bell
Whether she loves me or loves me not
Sometimes it's hard to tell
Yet I am longing to share the lot
A beautiful Daisy Bell
Daisy, Daisy, give me your answer do
I'm half crazy all for the love of you’
By Harry Dacre 1892
