Subject matter
Lombard summered in Monhegan, Maine and developed much of his aesthetic and subject matter there. Monhegan was a well known artist colony that had existed since the mid-nineteenth century. One of his later works, this study of a morning glory stem focuses on the elegance of supporting elements. Although great care is given to the depiction the flower, the true beauty comes from the flexible posture of the entire plant.
