MOUNTAIN FLOWERS, ALPINE BLOSSOMS

THROUGH A WOMAN ARTIST’S EYES

 

The lovely flowers embarrass me,

They make me regret I am not a bee-

Emily Dickinson

Anna Stainer Knittel, Alpenblumen, n.d., oil on cardboard, location unknown.

Alpenblumen or Alpine Flowers by Austrian painter Anna Stainer Knittel (1841-1915) expresses her love of the flowers of the mountain region where she was born and lived.  Knittel had a successful career as an artist, especially renowned for her landscapes and floral works.  While American poet Emily Dickinson (1830-1886) would only achieve fame posthumously for her incomparable verses, spending her life in obscurity in Amherst, Massachusetts.
