Still life painting, particularly of floral works, reached its peak in America during the Victorian pe- riod. The exhibition will highlight floral and kitchen still life works and will encompass a wide range of artistic styles. The show will in- clude realistic works such as Bowl of Flowers, a vibrant watercolor by John LaFarge (1835-1910). A graduate of Mount St. Mary's Col- lege in Emmitsburg, LaFarge not only did numerous floral still lifes, but excelled with stained glass. Brass Kettle and Candlestick, an oil by John Frederick Peto (1854-1907) will also be included. Peto, known for his soft and dusky lumimosities, is now being consid- ered as one of the nation's most prestigious still life artists. Also on view will be a water- color entitled Narcissus by Eleanor Parks Custis (1897-1983), a recent bequest from the estate of Mrs. Frances B. Newcomer.
