Heliodore's Woodstar and a Pink Orchid by Heade
Cross stitch chart or kit from the Scarlet Quince Birds Fine Art Collection.
Martin Johnson Heade (August 11, 1819 - September 4, 1904) was a prolific American painter known for his salt marsh landscapes, seascapes, portraits of tropical birds, and still lifes. His painting style and subject matter, while derived from the romanticism of the time, is regarded by art historians as a significant departure from that of his peers.
A tropical hummingbird perched on a large pink Cattleya orchid in a swamp. In the steaming, misty background are hills surrounding a lake and trees festooned with Spanish moss. There is also a chart of this design without the background. (American, about 1875-90)
