The Room Of Flowers, Childe Hassam (1894)

Here's the painting that got this all started. The painting has much richer color than this view allows - but an inviting painting none-the-less. The setting of the painting is in Celia Thaxter's parlor in the Isle of Shoals, NH. Hassam also did some water color illustrations in a book of Thaxter's entitled, An Island Garden.
