Study of an Orchid, 1829 by Martin Johnson Heade (1819 - 1904)
This remarkable oil by Martin Johnson Heade is reproduced on Museum Art Glass, the result of old-world appreciation of fine art expressed through ultra-clear glass production and the most accurate art reproduction process available.
The Hudson River School emerged during the second quarter of the 19th century in New York City when a group of artists forged the first self-consciously "American" landscape vision, embracing the natural world as a source of spiritual renewal and as an expression of national identity. Their works constituted the nation's first homegrown art. They initially painted views along the Hudson River and its environs, and later expanded to the newly opened West and beyond. One such traveler was Martin Johnson Heade (1819-1904), who visited South America several times in the 1860s and 1870s, and produced magnificent studies of hummingbirds with tropical flowers, often orchids.
