Edith Wood was one of the few modernists who exhibited with the Philadelphia Ten. This painting, Still Life, Anemones, shows her selective use of color and they way she altered perspective to allow the view to see multiple angles of the same image. This painting is in original condition and is in a 22 karat reproduction frame. The oil on canvas is signed at lower left, "Edith Wood" and likely was painted in the early 1920s. Wood was a highly educated woman. She initially studied at Bryn Mawr College, from there she attended the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts and later the Academie Scandinave in Paris. This painting comes from the estate of Leon Kelly.
