Take pleasure in a different flower every week of the year with this stunning 2022 engagement calendar from The Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Also included are paintings by Clara Peeters, one of the first female still-life painters, from the 17th century, and Charles Porter, the first Black American artist to specialize in still life.
