Hummingbirds with Passion Flowers is an oil painting done circa 1875-1885. It was painted by the artist Martin Johnson Heade, an American painter that became known for his impressive landscapes and detailed floral still-lifes, focusing primarily on the Magnolia blossom. Hummingbirds with Passion Flowers is part of a group of tropical pictures, a subject that deeply affected Heade's body of work. He dedicated his attention to tropical landscapes since 1863, even making several trips to South and Central America so he could witness the region with his own eyes. The hummingbird is one of the motifs of his artworks relating to tropical flora and fauna and is present in many of these canvases.
One of the most singular figures of 19th-century American art, Martin Johnson Heade, had his early education with regional folk artists. A stiff and rough manner can be seen in his previous pictures, beginning with portrait painting. Seeking further knowledge on oil painting techniques, he spent two years studying and creating in Rome. After returning, he made his debut in the Pennsylvania Academy of The Fine Arts and two years later participated in an exhibition in the National Academy at New York.
During the next few years, he frequently moved and eventually settled in New York, becoming Frederic Edwin Church's close friend. From the 1860s until 1877, they even shared a studio. Heade's personal association with Church led many authors to include him as part of the Hudson River School. While there are similarities between his work and the group of painters, especially their interest in depicting changes in natural lighting and the wilderness as a subject, today, Martin Johnson Heade's work is best understood on its own terms, having his personal themes and style.
Hummingbirds with Passion Flowers is originally oil on board. Its dimensions are 58.42 x 43.18 cm, a format reminiscent that of a portrait. There isn't any date on the artwork. Martin Johnson had the habit of putting the dates right next to his signature for commissions, so there's a possibility that this was created for his sheer passion for studying birds and vegetation. Its date is estimated to be from 1875-1882, a period after his voyage to Brazil when his work shifted to the depiction of tropical sights.
Unlike many paintings of this subject, which have a warmer and earthy palette, Hummingbirds with Passion Flowers has a light blue and yellow sky. Abundant green tonalities appear on a tree on the top left portion and descend into the bottom of the picture, with many leaves serving as its background. There are two hummingbirds at the forefront. A brown bird sits in a nest with a similar color to it, while the other sits in the center of the composition with yellow and red feathers. The bird's colors, along with the passionflowers, create a dynamic color contrast with the vegetation on the back, giving a greater visual focus to the subjects of the image.
