1940s Craypas Drawing - Original Floral Art Signed by the Artist - Purple Lily Magnolia Flowers
Symbols of dignity, gentleness, nobility and womanly beauty, magnolias in all their varieties, have been captivating flower lovers since the 1700's when they were first recorded on the island of Martinique...
We aren't quite sure which is sweeter... this beautifully rendered craypas drawing of a bouquet of purple lily magnolias or the handwritten signature at the bottom of the artwork. Signed Ethel Smith 1940 and framed in an almost antique shabby gold wood frame it is full of charm, representing an artist's careful eye for composition and color. In the South, magnolias hold a lot of power, not only for their big blooms, but also for their gorgeous scent and attractive waxy foliage. The purple lily magnolias featured here are one of the first trees to flower in Spring. Just when you think you can't stand one more day of winter weather, the purple lily magnolias poke out from the tips of dark grey sticks. Instantly, everyone is reassured. Yes, indeed, a new season is on its way filling hearts and heads with hope once again.
