Flower Sellers across the globe 18C - 20C



Bartolomé Estéban Murillo (1617-1682) The Flower Girl



George Beare (English artist fl 1743-1749) Flower seller

 In the crowded industrial cities of the 19C, where flowers & gardens were a luxury, town folks often depended on local flower sellers at open-air markets & on street corners. Generally, I am not a huge fan of sentimental genre paintings as art, but they often contain period details not available from other historical sources.
