Keys to Floral Symbolism in the Literary World of Juan van der Hamen

Abstract:

A renowned painter of floral still lifes, Juan Van der Hamen (1596–1631) possessed a library replete with works of literature by Lope de Vega, Góngora, Cervantes, and others. Van der Hamen's books were frequently written by his friends; the library mirrored a social circle composed of the most notable literary figures of the early seventeenth century. Yet he worked in a genre generally considered to be anything but narrative; attempts to find symbolic coherence in the majority of Van der Hamen's works have come to naught. By examining the literary discussions of plant symbolism in Van der Hamen's library and the manuscripts to which he most probably had access — a project heretofore not undertaken — this talk will suggest how we might begin a process of interpreting the artist's floral canvasses symbolically. In short, we may find that a genre, long treated as mute, has a great deal to say.
