oil on panel
By American artist, born of French parents, John La Farge
Painter, stained glass maker, decorator and writer...for a fascinating look into this artist's inspiration see his sketchbooks here. A collection held by the Yale University Art Gallery...from his journey to the South Seas in August of 1890.
The website design and interactivity alone worth a look. Pencil on paper, art in simplest form...brilliantly presented with today's technology.
JOHN LA FARGE'S
Like that in the La Farge's painting...a single magnolia blossom floating in a bowl of water.
Picked this morning, it's already starting to fall apart. Its beauty matched only by it fragility.
