Description

Stanley Huber Wood was a commercial and fine artist whose roots were found in architecture. In 1934, the New Jersey-born painter and printmaker, now living in California by way of Ohio, was commissioned to help redesign and promote the Floridian town of Key West.

Following his time there, he found great inspiration in the tropical flora of the southeast, as well as Mexico, and his work often featured the dramatic, lush monstera of the regions he frequented. Here, the oversized, commanding leaves of the evergreen shrub are highlighted among a tangle of tropical vines and dogwood flowers, softly glowing as if lit from behind.
