Red and White Geraniums

Stuart Park spent much of his career painting flowers and it is for these works that he is best known. His early flower paintings of the late 1880s are regarded as works of brilliance in terms of their design and use of colour.  It is widely felt however that latterly his work became quite formulaic and lacking in interest. The date of this work is unknown but it seems to retain a freshness which suggests that it belongs  to the body of work done in the 1890s. Park developed a method of painting petals with just one flourish of his brush, he appears to have used this technique in this painting.
