Description: ROBERT WILTON LOCKWOOD (American, 1861-1914) Still Life of Pink and White Chrysanthemums, 1888 Oil on canvas 17-1/2 x 23-3/4 inches (44.5 x 60.3 cm) Signed, inscribed and dated lower right: R. Wilton Lockwood / Paris 1888 THE JEAN AND GRAHAM DEVOE WILLIFORD CHARITABLE TRUST During the early 1880s, when he in his early 20s, Robert Lockwood trained as a painter and stained glass designer in New York City with John LaFarge, painting flowerpieces that were influenced by the Japanese aesthetic which LaFarge embraced. This spray of chrysanthemums which he produced in Paris a few years later is an interesting combination of a Victorian palette and oriental features such as decorative negative space, a high horizon line, a truncated motif and, of course, the flower itself. With letters of introduction from LaFarge, Lockwood continued his education in Paris, and then subsequently studied at the Munich academy. He became a member of the National Academy of Design and distinguished himself both as a portraitist and flower painter.
