moreOffering an original watercolor by the world renowned artist Patricia Tobacco Forrester. This watercolor is on French Arches archival 100% rag paper. The artist's signature is in pencil in the lower right hand corner. The frame is painted white wood with all archival materials including the mounting board and the ultra-violet filtering Plexiglass . This painting was executed vertically but the estate that I purchased the painting from changed the hooks and hung it horizontally...we have shown both options. Please check out our other Forrester watercolor listing.
This marvelously executed painting depicts a grouping of Peony flowers in an Abstract Expressionist style. It has a beautiful array of colors including varying shades of oranges, reds, blues, greens, and yellows. This painting is not dated, but most likely was executed in early 2000's. It was installed on 7/08 as seen in the photo. This NOT a print or a lithograph, but an original watercolor painting. The artists biography can be seen below.
A great painting by a famous and well respected artist of her time. It will fit in nicely into any decor especially the new trendy Boho Chic, Haute Bohemian and eclectic decor. A perfect item for the Forrester or watercolor collector.

Patricia Tobacco Forrester (1940-2011)
A Massachusetts native, Patricia Tobacco Forrester (born 1940) received her B.A. from Smith College (Phi Beta Kappa) in 1962 and her B.F.A. in 1963 and M.F.A. in 1965, both from Yale University. She was awarded a prestigious Guggenheim Foundation Fellowship in 1967. The artist's critically acclaimed watercolors are painted directly from nature, often on very large scale sheets of up to 40 x 60" paper. Her subject matter is primarily trees and flowers against a dramatic landscape vista, painted with an intuitive, lush, expressive sensibility.
The artist travels to exotic locales many months of the year, though her home base has been Washington, DC, since 1982. From the mid-sixties to 1981 she lived in San Francisco and she often returns to the region to paint the rocky coast of Santa Barbara or the rolling vineyards of the Napa Valley. She spends her winters painting in warmer climes, often island hopping in the Caribbean and traveling throughout Central and South America, as well as occasional sojourns in France and the Mediterranean.
Forrester accepted the invitation to become a member of the National Academy of Design in New York in 1992. Her work has been shown widely in hundreds of museum and gallery exhibitions across the United States and abroad for over thirty-five years. Numerous major museums own her paintings and prints, including the Art Institute of Chicago, British Museum, London, Brooklyn Museum, Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, Indianapolis Museum of Art, Library of Congress, National Academy of Design, Oakland Museum, Yale University Art Gallery, and the National Museum of Women in the Arts, the Smithsonian American Art Museum, the Corcoran Gallery of Art, and The White House, Executive Office Building in Washington, DC. Forrester was the recipient of a 2005 Artist Grant from the DC Commission on Arts and Humanities.
Upon the artist's death in March 2011, Forrester bequeathed the remaining major watercolors in her estate to seven major museums across the United States. She chose these museums since they featured her work often during her lifetime in major exhibitions. The selected museums are:
National Museum of Women in the Arts, Washington, DC
Smithsonian American Art Museum, Washington, DC
Corcoran Gallery of Art, Washington, DC (now transferred to
The National Gallery of Art, Washington, DC)
