Riassunto: Florist Marcel Wolterinck uses flowers and other flora as canvas and sculptural material in a breathtakingly creative fashion that very much rivals artists working in more ''traditional'' media. This volume presents an amazing project by Wolterinck, in which the artist transformed the official residence of the Dutch ambassador in Washington D.C., arranging the 43 varieties of tulips there into magnificent floral creations, in commemoration of the 400th anniversary of the cultivation of the tulip. Wolterinck's pieces coexisted in exquisite harmony with the neoclassical architecture and stately ambiance of the residence. "Wolterinck" documents this project in sumptuous full-color reproductions, examining both the flowers and their surroundings from various perspectives and levels. A tribute to the four-century Dutch tradition of artistry in gardens and flower arrangements, the artistic vision of Wolterinck, and to the incomparable beauty of the tulip itself, "Wolterinck" is a truly gorgeous book.
