The sketchbook series by “Manuscript” is titled “Tenderness,” featuring a selection of paintings by renowned world artists on their covers. The common conceptual root of the entire series is hidden in its name. Images for this series were chosen based on criteria of being gentle, warm, and close to everyone’s hearts.

The collection includes five sketchbooks with images of the following paintings: Jan Brueghel the Elder’s “Flowers In A Vase” from 1620, Jan van Huysum’s “Flowers in a Vase with Crown Imperial and Apple Blossom at the Top and a Statue of Flora” from 1724, Martin Johnson Heade’s “Passion Flowers with Hummingbirds” from 1883, Vincent Van Gogh’s “Almond Blossoms” from 1890, Gustav Klimt’s “The Kiss” and “Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer 1” from 1907-1908, and Sandro Botticelli’s “The Birth of Venus.” They all share a common floral theme, yet it’s impossible to describe the paintings as similar.

Brueghel’s work saturated with the dark tones of the Middle Ages, Huysum’s impossible bouquet, Heade’s tropical enigma, Van Gogh’s vibrant turbulence, Klimt’s femininity – each artwork demonstrates the multifaceted ways in which artists from various times and countries viewed and emphasized the tenderness of the world around them.
