Cherokee Roses On A Purple Velvet Cloth is a still-life painting by Martin Johnson Heade. Heade was an American painter who became known for his impressive landscapes, beautiful depictions of flowers, and his passion for hummingbirds and tropical settings. After doing a popular project called The Gems of Brazil, based on several trips he made to South and Central America, the artist began to deepen his interest in still-lifes. At this period in his life, Heade moved to Florida and created many pictures with similar compositions, studying the structure and texture of the Magnolia and the Cherokee roses.
Born in the small city of Lumbersville, Martin Johnson Heade became a distinguished 19th-century painter. Lectured by two folk artists from his hometown, the painter never entered any institution. From a stiff manner and simple structures, Heade developed a very personal style of layers, a luscious use of color, and the mastery of volumes, texture, and different surfaces. His most intensive artistic exchange was with the Luminist Frederic Edwin Church. Heade and Church met in New York after the former moved there seeking bigger art markets. They shared working spaces for many years, and the older painter’s way of working with light was undoubtedly one of Martin Johnson’s influences.
For many years Heade was analyzed as an odd-figure in the Hudson River School, mostly because from the 1860s on, he started to paint non-American settings. Even though there are shared interests between him and the group, and he probably was motivated to pursue landscape painting by them, their works differ significantly. One of the main differences can be observed in the series of still-life artworks that Martin Johnson painted in his later years; interiors with a more sober use of lighting.
Cherokee Roses On A Purple Velvet Cloth is an oil on canvas painted in 1894. As with his other still-lifes, the picture has a very muted palette when contrasted to the exotic sights for which he became better known. There are two blossoms occupying most of the composition and facing the viewer, and another rose can be seen behind it. In his usual style, Heade gives a very organic and vivid quality to this piece, constructing the volumes of leaves and petals through a smooth grading. The background is almost abstract, going from a very dark timber brown to bluish and reddish areas at the center, while the purple cloth, indicated in the title, is very similar to the background, creating a fluid reading of the image.
