Surprised! was the first of around 20 ‘jungle’ paintings that Rousseau produced, which are among his most popular works. These jungles are entirely imaginary: Rousseau never left France, despite his claim that he had served with the French army in Mexico. The foliage is a mix of domestic house plants and tropical varieties, which he had seen at the Botanical Gardens in Paris.
In this bouquet you find an exotic pairing of Green Cymbidium Orchids and Safari Sunset Foliage representing the tall jungle trees, Succulent, Green Dracena, Orion Blue Aryngium symbolising the deep blue hues in the jungle shadows and the rain. Orange Leucaspermum imitating the bold and vicious looking tiger, Bear Grass, Brown Hypericum, Green Chrysanthemum, Naranja Roses and Black Ruscus finishes this stunning tropical looking hatbox.
These luxury flowers are inspired by the masterpieces housed at the National Gallery. Each bouquet is beautifully arranged by our floral designers exclusively for the National Gallery. Included you will receive a gift card print of the artwork and a National Gallery care guide.
