Heade Still life

Martin Johnson Heade (1819-1904), Still Life with Wine Glass, 1860, oil on board, John Wilmerding Collection

This is the earliest known still life and flower subject by Martin Johnson Heade. The four floral still lifes in the Wilmerding collection (nos. 11-14) all date from the 1860s--a period during which Heade perfected his style and emerged as one of the first important flower painters in American art.
