In the realm of ancient Roman mythology, Flora reigns supreme as the goddess of flowers, blooming plants, and the arrival of spring. Throughout the ages, artists have been captivated by her timeless charm and have sought to depict her beauty. Today, we have the opportunity to witness Rembrandt’s masterpiece, Flora, in a whole new light.
Rembrandt, the legendary Dutch painter of the 17th century, possessed a unique ability to breathe life into his subjects. His depiction of Flora is no exception.
Flora is scattering flower, gathered in her lap, as a sign of nature’s rebirth. This work is thought to depict Rembrandt’s wife, Saskia, as Flora. She has a floral headdress over her hair, including cherry branches.
