The print has a softly textured faux suede grey green mat (it is not blue), and is housed in a burnished gold frame with raised scroll accents. Both print and frame are in near fine condition, ready to hang. Overall size is aprox 15.25 x 22.25 inches in the half yard long format.

Patty Thum biography:

Patty Prather Thum (October 1, 1853 - September 28, 1926) was American painter and art critic. Thum received an honorable mention for book illustration of "Robbie and Annie: A Child's Story" at the 1893 World's Columbian Exposition in Chicago.

Patty Prather Thum, daughter of Mandeville and Louisiana (Miller) Thum, was born in Louisville, Kentucky on October 1, 1853. Thum studied art in New York at Vassar College with Henry VanIngen, and under William Merritt Chase, Henry Mowbray, and Lemuel Wiles at the New York Art Students League. In the mid-1870s, Thum moved back to Louisville and began a career as a painter.

Thum had an art studio in Louisville for over 35 years. She is most well known for her landscape painting, but also painted still-lifes and portraits. As a child, Thum visited her grandparents at their rural home and developed a "love of nature". She painted private gardens in Jefferson and Oldham Counties with native trees being a focus of her work.
