About The Artist:

Lizbeth Clifton Hunter was born in Gilroy, California in 1868. She moved to New York by the early 1900s and became a member of the New York Watercolor Club, the National Association of Women Painters and Sculptors, the Boston Watercolor Club, as well as the New York Woman's Art Club. She was a student of Henry B. Snell, a landscape painter based in Philadelphia. From her artwork, it is evident that she traveled around Europe, taking her canvasses with her, especially to England, France, and Ireland. Later in her life, she moved to Redding Ridge, Connecticut.

Hunter's style is Impressionistic, as she used broad brushstrokes to capture natural light and shadows, especially in her European street scenes. These scenes, with their broad patches of color recall Camille Pissarro's landscapes of the French countryside in the 1870s.

This still life has many of the Impressionistic qualities of Hunter's landscapes, but her rendering of the ceramic bowl is naturalistic and more tightly painted. Her mixing of styles results in an innovative and intriguing composition. The range of textures in the painting is also very interesting, from the soft petals, the rigid stems, and the cool smoothness of the bowl. Proving to be a master colorist, Hunter creates a wonderful contrast between the pink of the flowers and the rich green of the bowl. Moreover, the richness, texture, and three-dimensionality is palpable.
