"Ceonothus Laptospermum Scaporam" One of a set of six botanical portraits by Trinidadian Theodora Walter. Painted in New Zealand in 1920. She was the grand-daughter of Joseph Walter (1783 - 1856); the daughter of Theodore Walter (1843-1902), marine painter; and later wife of HC Robinson, a flower painter & potter. She spent much of her life in Trinidad, but also lived in Surinam and London. She travelled widely, joined the Theosophical Society, there becoming a good friend of Rudolph Steiner, and developed an individualistic painting style now recognised as an early form of Expressionism. The Royal Horticultural Society monthly member's magazine "Garden" carried a 4 page article relating to her botanical work, in its 1986 edition, pages 284-8
The painting is in its original frame. There are some minor faults to the paper. The work is titled on a label to the rear. The set of 6 may be purchased for £295
