Notes

Staff Pick:

Kayleen Wrigley, Valuations Department: " I love the pointillist manner in which this work has been rendered. I am a keen scholar of floriography – the Victorian-era language of flowers. Decoding the bouquet in this composition we find yellow chrysanthemums representing happiness and joy, interspersed with irises symbolising faith, hope, courage, wisdom, and admiration. What a jolly display!"
