How did scholars and literati arrange flowers in ancient times, and how did they express their feelings via flower arrangements? To show support for the Taichung World Flora Exposition, the National Palace Museum hosted special exhibition Floral Art for Pleasure: Appreciation of Flower Vessels and Lifestyle, introducing flower vessels together with paintings and calligraphy to showcase the aesthetics of flower arrangements that existed between the sixteenth and twentieth century. The goal is to enlighten visitors on how scholars and literati selected elegant antiques in the past as well as how they created a tasteful lifestyle by using novel fashion styles and floral vessels with auspicious meanings.
