"Roses" by Patty Thum

Title

"Roses" by Patty Thum

Description

Early in her career, Thum began painting roses, which she exhibited at the Southern Exposition in Louisville and at the National Academy of Design in New York. She painted plein air in the gardens and parks of Louisville and studied many varieties of roses. Her paintings were recognized for their realistic accuracy and quickly led to a variety of commerical opportunities.

"Among the ten of dozen specimens of Miss Patty Thum's works are to be found some exquisite touches in the reproduction of flowers--roses, which do all but perfume the air."
-Courier-Journal, November 12, 1897
