Horticulture in Art

This week, we visited the Royal Palace of Caserta. This is a gorgeous palace with a beautiful garden behind it! While we were walking through the palace, however, I noticed that there were a lot of horticultural aspects inside the building as well as outside. There are plants in the art, furniture, and even the architecture of the building.

Most of the picture frames were outlined in plants, whether flowers or other foliage. Lots of the furniture decor was plant-based, such as the table photo attached. Even the ceilings are covered in plant decorations.

These pieces show how important horticulture has always been in the history of art and the cultures of the world.
