Why We Love It

This gorgeous still life clearly demonstrates Babcock's remarkable technical skills. While this work has many of the hallmarks of Victorian still life painting, Babcock has rendered this subject with loose and fluid brushwork, which is entirely reflective of his own individualistic style.

The Value

Babcock's floral still lifes are comparatively rare, and this exuberant floral display is one of the few known examples by the artist.
