1951 Barbara Shaw 'English Country Garden' Print

Product ID: A139

 

A gorgeously appealing large-scale still life of blowsy peonies, roses, fuschias, morning glory, tulips and other garden blooms;displayed in a pot bellied footed glass container. This lovely floral picture, by Royal Academy exhibitor & accomplished English artist Barbara Shaw, depicts freshly picked garden flowers magnificently arranged and superbly captured for posterity. The skilled observation and execution of the flowers and the exquisitely observed stone surface upon which they are set is wonderfully rendered.

The picture is beautifully observed, to carefully and evocatively capture the nature of the blooms and foliage, which are set against a subdued natural green toned ground. The execution of the glossy foliage is of particular note. This attention to detail was typical of Shaw, who worked very slowly, and directly from garden flowers.

She started painting flowers under the tuition of Lionel Ellis in 1947, and first exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1949; two years prior to the date of this very accomplished work of 1951.
