Flora Olbiensis

A beautiful series of pictures by Erwan Frotin.
Flora Olbiensis Frotin’s exuberant portraits of tiny wild flowers found in the fields and forests around the Villa Noailles in Hyères, France, resonate with the Surrealist history of the location. Built in 1925-27 by the architect Robert Mallet Stevens, the villa was a holiday home for the Vicountess Marie-Laure de Noailles, a famous patron of artists including Jean Cocteau, and Man Ray.
