Flowers by a Window by Anna Elizabeth Hardy (1839 - 1934)
SHP046
Late 19th century oil on canvas painting titled "Flowers in a Window" by American Artist Anna Eliza Hardy, signed in the lower left. This vivid still life reflects colorful yellow, pink, and white flowers against a blue and gray sky. Anna Eliza Hardy was born (1839 - 1934) in Bangor, Maine. She painted her first painting at the age of sixteen under her father's encouragement, promising her one of his landscapes if she could copy it. She has been described by William Gerdts as the "finest still life specialist in Maine in the 19th century." She exhibited at the National Academy of Design (1876 - 1877) and the Boston Art Club (1894 - 1896). Hardy was also an instructor of art and taught a number of women who specialize in floral paintings including Charlotte Baldwin, Florence Jenison, and Emma Web. 26"H x 14"W including frame.
