Spring is budding up tenderly all across the Northern Hemisphere!

Getting lost in bewitching daydreams concerning sprawling picnics in unshorn Provençal lavender fields–replete with toile blankets,  plush velvet cushions, just-picked apricots, clotted cream,  and  fizzy pink champagne–is easy to do these days, everyone. So to properly celebrate the flowery bits of the Vernal Equinox here at Saatchi Gallery, we’ve put together a cheery batch of  Art History’s top-notch springtide-centric canvasses for your viewing pleasure.

Enjoy, you fuzzy little lambs and ducklings!
