Antique Violets Print by Stumm Victorian.
This outstanding 1890's chromolithograph print is by the Victorian artist, Maud Stumm (see biography below). It's a grand display of gorgeous purple-lavender hued violets, some in nosegay bouquets, and a bunch in a crystal vase. The print is entitled Fashion's Favorites. In Victorian times, the little violet symbolized the virtue of Faithfulness, and Victorian ladies were very fond of the little violet.
The print is in mint condition. It has a textured faux suede archival mat with graceful arched corners that compliment the roundness of the bouquets and the vase. (Please note: any blue or white streaks/lines are just glass glare, not on the print.) It is in the original frame, off white with a gold inner beaded edge, and the corners have burnished brass embellishments.
The frame is in nice condition, with the usual crazing typical to a 100+ year old piece of art. Please disregard any whitish or fade glare/lines, they are not on the print, just glass reflection. Overall size with the frame is quite large at 20 x 26 inches. Please note that shipping to the Eastern US is an ESTIMATE, please email with your zip code for an exact quote or wait for a revised invoice before paying.
Maud Stumm biography:
Known as a portrait, figure, and still-life painter, Maud Stumm was born near Cleveland, Ohio, about 1866, the daughter of Frank A. and Lucy Stumm. After receiving her early education in the Cleveland public schools, she pursued her art education, from 1884 to 1888, at the Cleveland Art Club, and then attended the Art Students League in New York, where her instructors were Kenyon Cox and Siddons Mowbray.
During the early 1890's, her watercolors were shown at the Art Institute of Chicago, the National Academy of Design, the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art, and the Boston Art Club. Later, after study in Paris with Oliver Merson (circa 1894-1895), she returned to New York, where she found much success. Many of Stumm’s most famous studies are those of flowers and lovely ladies. The Gray Lithographic Company published several of her studies. She died in 1935.
