Martin Johnson Heade

Martin Johnson Heade was part of the Luminist School of Painting his landscapes and still life paintings all explore the effects of coloured light upon a painting. His desire to explore light even lead him to move to Brazil where he painted birds and orchids. Martin Johnson Heade was born in 1819 in Lumberville, Pennsylvania. He travelled widely for a number of years supporting himself as a professional portrait artist. Having moved to New York in the 1850s Heade soon moved away from portraits turning to landscape scenes instead. He was particularly interested in experimenting with the effects of coloured light upon a painting. The Luminist School of Painting as it was called was a popular movement at the time and can be seen as a key stage in the development towards Impressionism. In 1863 Heade moved to Brazil, drawn to the country by its magnificent light. He produced a large number of flower paintings particularly favouring magnolias and orchards, as well as studies of birds, all done in the Luminist style. Returning to the United States in 1885 Heade settled in Florida where he continued painting seascapes until his death in 1904.
