Subject and Association DescriptionLionel Lindsay created many still life prints - almost all as wood engravings. Much of the flowers, vegetables and fruit in his still lifes were from his own garden.
"Lindsay has here captured the fleeting nature of the apple blossom as a flower which cannot happily be kept in a vase for more than a day. By placing the blossom in an awkward cylinder-like vase he has stressed its fluidity and natural freedom."
