While we were in the Louvre we came across a set of paintings that we talked about during class. The four paintings are called the Four Seasons collectively and portray the profile of a man's face completely made up of different vegetables and fruits that are grown during each respective season. It is quite a bizarre idea but the artist did such a wonderful job that the paintings were really something to look at. Once I started looking for different plants in paintings I was amazed at how prevalent they are in all types of art. Horticulture surrounds us in everyday life from plants we see, to the food we eat, to the art on the wall. It has been such an amazing experience to be in a country that is exploding with such beautiful landscapes that I am able to enjoy everyday.
