Aldrichimica Acta 2016, Vol. 49, No. 2

Martin Johnson Heade (1819–1904)
Giant Magnolias on a Blue Velvet Cloth, ca. 1890

Painting Clues

Cattleya Orchid and Three Brazilian Hummingbirds (oil on wood panel, 34.8 × 45.6 cm) was painted by Heade in 1871 following his trip to Central America. The painting was featured on the cover of Aldrichimica Acta, Vol. 35, No. 3 (2002). It proved to be one of the most popular Acta cover paintings with readers. Heade painted several variations on the theme of hummingbirds and tropical flowers, as well as still lifes of magnolias. These are found in various art museums and galleries as well as in private hands. Perhaps, the best place to view images of them online would be
