The fine, delicate brushwork and subject matter of this painting
suggest that it is the work of a woman artist. While E. Lynde is
not a listed artist, the painting owes much to the floral still-life
style of contemporary artist Martin Johnson Heade. Heade also
favored Winsor & Newton artist boards for his small scale paintings.
