Flower Series: A Rose for Luigi Rist. A tribute piece to Luigi
Rist by artist James Windram.
"Although I never met Luigi, I became acquainted with his work (many years ago) at an auction held in Lancaster County, Pa. and through a collector in the region who owned several of his prints (and a set of wood blocks) which I now own. I was very much taken with his botanical work. I was told (by the collector) that Luigi struggled to sell his work while he was living, and then, as is the case many times, after his death his work became much collected. For these reasons I wanted to dedicate one of my own botanical works to him." (taken from an email from James Windram).
If you are interested in this painting or would look at other art work by the artist, he has a WEB site.
