Fields of flowers, some being picked but mostly being left alone. American, Impressionist school. John Ottis Adams, artist. Living from 1851 to 1927, he was a member of the Hoosier Group of landscape artists. Studied at the South Kensington School of Art in London.

Oh these are so lovely.

Francis Edmonds, “Devotion” (1857). Does anyone know the story, explanation, history, analysis of this? It’s one of my favorite paintings, but I want to make sure I understand it correctly and like it for the right reasons — Making Histolines
