An Amazing Collection Of Free Vintage Flower Illustrations

This is a collection of beautiful copyright-free vintage flower illustrations and drawings.

Naturalists have been painting beautiful Botanical floral illustration since the time of the Greeks. Being a Botanical illustrator was a respected profession in the 17th and 18th Centuries. Many of these wonderful flower illustrations are still have relevance and importance with today’s botanists.

Many of these vintage flower drawings were like works of art in themselves. Here is a collection of the best flower prints on Pictureboxblue, from individual flowers such as roses, sunflowers, peonies and tulips to seed packets and artistic floral still lifes by the Dutch Masters.

Beautiful Vintage Floral Art

All the flowers prints are in the public domain so you are free to download and print them out and use them however you want. Whether it is to frame and great a beautiful gallery wall in your home or to use the flower illustrations in your craft and DIYs.

I have a friend who is a professional floral textile designer and she uses vintage flower illustrations for reference and inspiration with her new paintings. Or perhaps you are like me and just like looking at beautiful drawings and pictures.

All the floral prints, drawings and illustrations have been featured on Pictureboxblue. I have just curated them in one convenient location. This list will grow as more vintage floral art is published on the site.

I suggest you pin or bookmark the page and revisit it later to see what is new. If you want to look at your own flower illustrations, check out my guide to easy cherry blossom drawings and hibiscus how to draw posts.

I’ve used some wonderful vintage flower images in a nature-inspired decoupage paper mache bowl.
