Summary

Combining floral artistry and fine art, A Bouquet from the Met presents imaginative displays of fresh flowers within the galleries and period rooms of The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. Master floral designer Chris Giftos, known for the extravagant bouquets that welcome visitors to the museum's Great Hall, was inspired by works of art and their exquisite settings throughout the Met to create scores of splendid arrangements - one time only and exclusively for this book.
Author Barbara Plumb explores Giftos's genius with flowers as she conducts an informal tour through some of the museum's best-loved galleries and spaces.
