    Ana Maria Hernando will be in the DAM’s Flower Studio October 3 and 4, collaborating with museum goers using fabric flowers to craft a textile work of art.

    6 Tips for Delighting in the Details in In Bloom 

    I’ll never forget when I first discovered the nearly microscopic ant perched on a leaf in Gerard van Spaendonck’s Basket of Flowers on an Alabaster Pedestal, one of the magnificent still life paintings on view in In Bloom: Painting Flowers in the Age of Impressionism.

Masquerading as a documentary about the Hippeastrum flower bulb, the work is actually a portrait of a woman wholly devoted to the care of these bulbs, which contain the hope of flowering only once a year.
