Del nominare i fiori: Ferrari, Poussin e la storia della storia naturale

Freedberg, David A.

On naming flowers: Ferrari, Poussin and the history of natural history

To introduce the subject of my lesson I use two famous paintings by Nicolas Poussin: the Triumph of Flora in the Musée du Louvre, painted in 1627 or 1628, just a few years after the painter's arrival in Rome, and the large painting by 1631 illustrating the Reign of Flora, now in the Gemäldegalerie of Dresden.
