‘Flowers’, according to the visionary painter Christian Peltenburg-Brechneff have ‘an underlying sensuality and sexuality which makes them very special’. In his book, Into the Garden Christian gives us his unique perspective of twenty-eight private gardens from around the world. Kirk Reed Forrester in FlowerMag admires Christian’s ability to capture ‘the texture, style and mood of each place’ while the designer Bunny Williams describes when Christian painted her garden and how she ‘sometimes felt that Vincent van Gogh was looking over his shoulder and waving approval’. A beautiful book.
