"The poppy is painted glass; it never glows so brightly as when the sun shines through it.
Wherever it is seen...against the light or with the light,...always it is a flame..."
- John Ruskin, in Proserpina
Monet used the poppy to anchor more than one of his
masterpieces, such as Wild Poppies. Click

In Ruskin's Flame, a solo brilliant orange poppy is set
