Joseph Stella was an outstanding draftsman, and he made drawings throughout his career. Many of these works feature flowers, a subject that held great fascination for the artist. Attracted to their colorful and delicate beauty, he also was drawn to the symbolic meanings associated with flowers. As Stella explained, a “light, gay painting of a flower” was a “good omen that all our days may glide by serene [and] sunny.” The four works on paper featured in this set of notecards attest to the calming, uplifting spirit of blooms, both delicate and showy.
