Carnations, Social Status and the Power Over Nature in some Fifteenth and Sixteenth-Century Flemish Illuminated Manuscripts |
Join John Block Friedman. Carnations, not native to Europe in the late Middle Ages, along with private gardens, and some associated high status containers such as Venetian ripple glass, and majolica pots, formed part of the material culture of Northern Europe in the Early Modern period. Carnations became important symbols of social status.
