A Tulip by Peter Mitchev

Artwork Description

Originally from Persia and Turkey, tulips were brought to Europe in the 16th century, where they got their common name from the Turkish word for gauze (with which turbans were wrapped) - reflecting the turban-like appearance of a tulip in full bloom. The story goes that a prince named Farhad was love struck by a maiden named Shirin. When Farhad learned that Shirin had been killed, he was so overcome with grief that he killed himself - riding his horse over the edge of a cliff. It's said that a scarlet tulip sprang up from each droplet of his blood, giving the red tulip the meaning "perfect love." There is a saying that that the tulip's velvety black center represents a lover's heart, darkened by the heat of passion.

With the power to rival roses in their red variety and the sweet charm to express simple joy when yellow, it's no wonder that in addition to all its other symbolism, in the language of flowers, a tulip bouquet represents elegance and grace.

A portrait of young couple in a tender embrace, with a young woman holding a yellow tulip symbolizes the joy and elegance in life. This is one of the most bright and beautiful artworks of the artist Peter Mitchev. One of the most creative, experimental, and controversial artists on the contemporary art scene, the works of Peter Mitchev are dominated by the themes of sexuality, love, and unity. His works are almost symbolic and very close to the Vienna secession art movement and one of his creators, Gustav Klimt.
