'The salient trait of Maria Oakey Dewing, was the strain of originality that characterized her deep feeling for beauty-There was no mistaking her quality, her accent ... she knew how to interpret the soul of a flower-but her principal aim was to make it a work of art ..Royal Cortissoz, authoritative critic for the New York Herald Tribune. Highly prized, Maria Oakey Dewing's gorgeous paintings captured the lushness of the roses and carnations which grew in her spring garden in Cornish, New Hampshire.
We're so pleased and proud to present a needlepoint reproduction of a portion of what was possibly her most famous floral painting, "Garden in May" , which is currently housed in Smithsonian's National Museum of American Art. Long out of production, this exquisite garden portrait is part of Polite to Point's exclusive collection of designs for the Smithsonian Institution. You'll work with some of the finest natural materials which will insure your project will have lasting beauty , and be a delight for generations to come.
