There must be millions of photographs of roses, however the opulent beauty of the flower, soft and enfolding - but with hidden barbs - makes us take more!

"There is nothing more difficult for a truly creative painter than to paint a rose, because before he can do so he has first to forget all the roses that were ever painted."
Henri Matisse (1869-1954), French painter
