The White Roses

before 1922

Anna S. Fisher

From the collection

Title

The White Roses

Date

before 1922

Description

With its combination of naturalistically painted flowers and Asian objects, this stunning watercolor recalls the still lifes of John La Farge, and demonstrates Western artists' enduring fascination with art of the Far East into the twentieth century. Like La Farge, who was one of the earliest and most influential proponents of Japonisme in America, Anna Fisher sets up engaging contrasts between natural and artificial, ephemeral and enduring, and local and exotic.

Descriptive medium: Opaque watercolor, graphite, touches of pastel, and touches of transparent watercolor on cream, moderately thick, slightly textured wove paper mounted to wood pulp paperboard
