Orchids Nesting Hummingbirds And A Butterfly by Martin Johnson Heade. www.roypedersenphotography.com
Martin Johnson Heade was born in 1819 in Lumberville, Pennsylvania, a small hamlet along the Delaware River in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. He spent his childhood there. Heade's primary interest was in landscapes and 40 percent of his paintings were landscapes. The remaining majority were still lifes, paintings of birds, and portraits. During his later years in St. Augustine Heade also painted numerous still lifes of southern flowers, especially magnolia blossoms laid on velvet.
