Damien Hirst: Cherry Blossoms
The 107 works of Damien Hirst’s Cherry Blossoms (2019) reinterpret, with playful irony, the traditional subject of landscape painting. Describing his cherry blossoms as “garish and messy and fragile,” Hirst’s paintings are both an appropriation and a tribute to the pictorial art of the 19th and 20th centuries, with thick brushstrokes and elements of gestural painting that reference Impressionism, Pointillism, and Action Painting. This oversized volume contains depictions of Hirst’s series.
