Paul de Longpré (1855–1911), was a French painter of flowers, who worked mainly in the United States. De Longpré painted only perfect specimens of flowers. With a delicacy of touch and feeling for color he united scientific knowledge and art.
He also knew how to give expression to the subtle essence of the flowers. He painted floral scenes almost exclusively in watercolors. The finest of his paintings include Double Peach Blossoms and White Fringed Poppies (1902) – both widely known through popular reproductions. (Wikipedia.org)
