Vintage Botanical Photogravures-Karl Blossfeldt-Set of 12. Strikingly modern and inherently beautiful, Karl Blossfeldt’s extreme close-up photographs of plants, flowers, stems and seed heads are as appealing (perhaps even more so) today as when they were first introduced to the public in the first and second quarters of the 20th century. These images are from Blossfeldt’s collection of photographs in “Art Forms In Nature” published in 1932 (the photos were actually taken around the turn of the century, but were printed later). All of our listings from “Art Forms In Nature” feature these outstanding close-up photogravures that are printed on one side only as shown in the photos. Self-taught in photography, he devoted himself to the study of nature, photographing nothing but flowers, buds and seed capsules for thirty-five years. What made Blossfeldt’s work unique was his extreme technical mastery of photography. He specialized in macrophotography to enlarge his plant specimens and even designed a camera for this purpose. As a result, everyday garden flowers are presented in such a way that their rhythmic forms are emphasized to the extreme and the plants take on new and exotic characteristics. Blossfeldt wanted his work to act as a teaching aid and inspiration for architects, sculptors and artists. It was his firm belief that only through the close study of the intrinsic beauty present in natural forms, that contemporary art would find its true direction. Blossfeldt’s photographs were made with a homemade camera that could magnify the subject up to thirty times its actual size. By doing so he revealed extraordinary details within the natural structure of the plants. In the process he created some of the most innovative photographic work of his time. The simple yet expressive forms captured on film affirmed his boundless artistic and intellectual ability.
