Roses, Abbott Handerson Thayer
On Google Art Project. Downloadable high-res image on Wikimedia Commons. Original is in the Smithsonian American Art Museum.
I’ve had the pleasure of seeing this piece in person; if you’re at the Smithsonian, it’s worth seeking out (not that there aren’t other treasures aplenty in the same collection.)
According to The Gilded Age: Treasures from the Smithsonian American Art Museum, on seeing this piece, painter Thomas Dewing remarked: “Beautiful Roses, Thayer, but why did you put them in an ash barrel?”

Now that’s a beautiful color palette.
Thank you for Thayer’s Delicate Roses.
Bellissime opere d’arte
