Watercolor - Still Life of Petunias by Listed Artist

This delightful watercolor of full blown petunias by listed artist Eleanor Rogers Copeland is loosely rendered, yet so infused with rich color and dancing light that you can almost smell the full blown blooms… it's easy to imagine reaching out to touch their fragile, velvety petals. Copeland has the confident, sure hand needed for watercolor painting, and achieves beautifully lifelike results that become more abstract and impressionistic as one gets closer.

Eleanor M Copeland was born in England, but studied and lived in the US, which likely explains why she is listed as both an American and a British artist. She was married to artist Joseph Frank Copeland and a student of Henry Bayley Snell, a member of the New Hope School of Pennsylvania Impressionism. Copeland's career spanned the Impressionist years in Europe (she was born in 1875) and extended well into the 20th C. She is best known for floral still life paintings like this one.

CONDITION is lovely, matted, framed, and ready to hang. The light gold wooden frame shows only the most minor wear. Measures 28 5/8" x 22 1/8" overall with a sight size of 20 1/2" x 14" inside the mat.

This is a beautiful, lush painting that will bring the magic of a summer country garden into any home. In the Victorian language of flowers, petunias have a presence that soothes… and who couldn't use a little of that now and then? Enjoy!
