Passion Flowers and Hummingbirds by Martin Johnson 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.
Two hummingbirds in the steaming Brazilian jungle. One is perched on a vine of red passion flowers emerging from a patch of mossy vegetation, and the other is hovering nearby. The sun struggles to break through the heavy mist (1875-85).
Approx: 20" x 15" or 50 x 37cm - when worked on 18ct.
