Elyse Ashe Lord - Dianthus
Dianthus (vase with flowers) is a still life which was created by Elyse Ashe Lord around 1920. Lord (1900-1971) was often characterized as a British Orientalist, as she specialized in far eastern subjects. She was a highly respected artist with accolades which include election to the Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolors, and a member of the Society of Graver-Printers in Color. Her work has been exhibited in galleries throughout Europe. Dianthus is an original colored aquatint. It measures 10.25" by 12." (without frame). It is signed and numbered (28/75) in pencil. It is in excellent condition and is displayed in the original frame.
