"Flowers, it seems, are to be found almost everywhere – on glass, textiles, furniture, ceramics or posters. The Museum Bellerive traces the flower as a reoccurring design subject, starting with delightful objects from various disciplines and designers. Vases decorated with flowers by Emile Gallé and Max Laeuger or pieces of porcelain from Meissen reflect the preferences of different epochs, in much the same way as the ornamental wallpapers by William Morris. Fabrics from Fabric Frontline place a contemporary emphasis on botanical precision, those from Sonnhild Kestler on the use of folklore elements. The poster offers us an idea of the inexhaustible nature of flowers as a motif, it seems that they can be used to express – almost – anything. Positions of contemporary artists complete this floral bouquet."
