More information about this seller Contact this seller So much took place with flowers and gardens that for Baudelaire flowers became evil symbols of a world he had rejected. In Australia, floriculture—and horticulture, in general—were vital to the individual and social acclimatization of settlers.
David Goodman writes about the pleasure that British settlers obtained from the successful cultivation of northern hemisphere vegetables and fruits in Australian soil, and how the sight of flowers and plants from "home" was sometimes an overwhelming emotional experience. Flowers, in particular, were reminders of the past but also generated feelings of loss and regret.
They were powerful vehicles for emotions such as nostalgia, and for longings and desires connected with memory. Goodman recounts the reaction of a certain George Baker when, sailing into Port Phillip Bay in , the pilot's men came on board his ship, bringing "with them a bunch of Australian flowers as a sign of Welcome. Flowers could transport homesick migrants back in time and space to their place of origin.
One colonial artist, John Dicksee, made this psychological phenomenon the subject of a lithograph titled The First Primrose which depicts a room crowded with people eager to see the first blossom of an English primrose picked from a newly cultivated garden in Australia. Katie Holmes, Susan K. Martin, and Kylie Mirmohamadi argue that this print has an important place in Australian cultural history for the way it illustrates the social significance and symbolism of gardens and flowers in the lives of early European settlers.
In Britain, Fantin was most famous for his paintings of roses due to their popularity in that country, which in the second half of the century had become a leader in rose cultivation. Given the emotive power of flowers it is easy to imagine how Fantin's paintings of popular English garden varieties could evoke nostalgia for "home" among his Australian audience; the colonial gaze transformed these paintings into portraits of England.
It is also easy to imagine how they threw into sharp relief the difference between northern hemisphere flowers and the robust, dark, and primitive banksias that grew naturally in Australia. Finally, Fantin's paintings call up the activity of gardening, an occupation with symbolic importance in a country that was in the process of "taming" the landscape, and in a culture in which gardens were seen as a "civilising and a quietening force.
The importance of floriculture and a floral aesthetic in Australian upper-middle-class culture is exemplified by Joanna and Robert Barr Smith. The Barr Smiths surrounded themselves with familiar European plants and flowers not only by bringing seeds for agriculture to the New World, but with the artworks they owned.

Among the five paintings by Fantin-Latour they reputedly owned, four were referred to as flowerpieces. Floral motifs abounded in the rich array of chintzes and other fabrics, carpets and embroideries, wallpaper, glassware, and furniture that they selected. Daffodils decorated their curtains, and an array of roses, tulips, fuchsias, and marigolds adorned their armchairs. The silk brocatelle designed by J.
Dearle that decorated their armchairs was woven with flowers in various stages of opening, from bud to fully-blown, a reminder that earthly life is dynamic and also transient. Beauty and Truth: Fantin-Latour's Critical Reception Though paintings by Fantin-Latour came to Australia as early as the s, it was not until the s that critics began to write about his work in a serious way. By then, modernism had made some strides in Australia, and the critics who wrote about Fantin were mostly conservative ones who held up his work as an example of beauty and truth in art.
Conservative art criticism was the hallmark of Art in Australia , a popular journal, whose founder and editor Sydney George Ure Smith — promoted the view that correct drawing and observation of nature were the sine qua non of great art; and "whatever lay behind an art object must be drawn from the knowledge of its physical presence. The conservatism of Ure Smith and the critics and artists in his circle may be related to one effect of the recently ended world war; it caused many in Australia, as elsewhere, to feel nostalgic for the nineteenth century—a period the artist and critic Lionel Lindsay referred to as the time before the world was "disturbed by the machine, the craze for speed and cheap luxury.
In Lindsay wrote an article on the work of Fantin-Latour in Art in Australia ,in which he called Fantin the successor to Chardin:. He is best and deservedly known as a painter of flowers. In this province he stands alone, continuing the tradition of Chardin, intimate and unmannered. His instinct for arranging flowers in their right setting is, like his taste, faultless, because it is so unpretentious.
He never forced his subject, but liberated the charm which had attracted him, and of the flower, he gives us everything but its scent. Lindsay further explained the connection he saw between Fantin-Latour and Chardin, finding in both the virtue of a "quiet relationship of the painter with his subject-matter [that] is entirely absent from modernist work. Once the fashion of the hour has passed, there is no escape from the inquiring eye of truth. Then is the masquerader unmasked, the hireling stripped of his temporary honours. Only the true artist, clad in his native sincerity, shall survive. In a passage in an article on the Australian artist Hans Heysen, Lindsay discussed what he saw as Fantin's greatest strength, namely his sensitivity to the beauty of simple things:.
To paint flowers well one must have a special temperament. The freshness and fragility, the brief splendor of the flower's life—apotheosis of "Useless Beauty"—which spends its essence in a day, may only be captured by a sensitive mind and an able hand.
