Barton S. Hays (American, 1826-1914). Oil on board painting depicting a still life of roses beautifully blooming with white baby's breath.

Although Hays initially gained popularity for his portraiture - such as his painting of then-governor of Indiana, William Henry Harrison - his focus shifted to still life paintings after his move to Minneapolis and it was these realistic paintings that were his most popular. He also created panorama paintings such as his painting depicting scenes from Harriet Beecher Stowe's iconic novel "Uncle Tom's Cabin."
