Thistle Art

Thistle art is a form of unique plant image that depicts an unusual form of flower. The thistle is traditionally a flower that symbolizes survival in spite of all odds. Because of this many floral paintings that feature thistles are highly symbolic, regardless of whether they are traditional depictions of thistle art or pop art pictures.

Many pop art pictures employ thistle art as their subject matter. These works employ the graphic qualities of thistles and make them into an unique plant image that combines floral paintings with abstract design principles. Images like 'In the Thistles III' by Sid Rativo and 'Thistle Panel I' by James Burghardt are examples of how these pop art pictures can combine with other flower art in a uniquely aesthetic way.

Floral paintings that depict thistles aren't only a product of the modern age however. Many famous art images also employ thistles in their executions. The most famous example of thistle art however, can be seen in 'Still Life with Thistles, 1890' by Vincent Van Gogh. This floral painting was considered especially representative of this infamous artist’s mental state and was seen as a statement that he would continue to survive and create art despite his personal difficulties.

Thistle art is a bold decorative choice but these floral paintings can be a definite aesthetic and symbolic benefit to any space. Although occasionally seen as a somewhat unique plant image, floral paintings that employ thistle art are highly uplifting and encouraging prints.
