A Museum Quality Art Print of Carnation, Lily, Lily, Rose painted by John Singer Sargent. The inspiration for this picture came while Sargent was on a boating expedition on the Thames at Pangbourne in September of 1885 with the American Artist, Edwin Austin Abbey. During this trip, he saw Chinese Lanterns hanging among the trees and lilies. He began painting the picture while staying at the home of the painter F. D. Millet at Broadway, Worcestershire, shortly after his move to Britain from Paris. At first , he used the Millets five year old daughter, Katherine as his model, but she was soon replaced by Polly and Dolly Barnard, the daughters of the illustrator Fredrick Barnard, because they had the same exact hair color that Sargent was seeking. Sargent finally got this picture finished in October of 1886. The original of this oil on canvas is now hanging at the Tate Britain Museum.
