James Stuart Park (1862 - 1933) was a Scottish painter who was born in Kidderminster, of Ayrshire parents. He studied in the Glasgow School of Art and in Paris. His work was best known for his flower paintings. He lived in Glasgow from 1883, and Elmslie, Kilmarnock from 1904. He exhibited in most major British galleries including the R.S.A., the R.A., the Glasgow Art Gallery and The Fine Art Society, Edinburgh. Many works by the artist have been sold at auction, including 'Still life of pink and lemon roses and glass vase ' sold at Bonhams Edinburgh 'The Scottish Sale' in 2006 for $44,366. Bonhams Edinburgh sold another of his works in 2014 for over $23,000.00. It is notable that this was a small painting, only about 15 by 12 inches!
I purchased this wonderful still life years ago at the prestigious Clars Auction Gallery. It was estimated at $5,000.00 to $7,000.00 and I paid close to the low estimate. It has its original tag from Clars still attached.
