The Last Rose of Summer

Buyer Protection Guaranteed


The Last Rose of Summer depicts a single red rose placed within a silver cup. The cup shows a history of patina as a combination of grays and yellows create the illusion of tarnished silver. While the red rose is the focus of the painting with its deep rich color, one cannot help be interested in its white background. What at first appears to be a simplistic, white space transforms with distance. The faint indication of shadow in the bottom right corner gives the white background a cloth like appearance. The visible brushstrokes and raised ridges of paint add texture to the otherwise reserved work.

Joseph has been making pictures for as long as he can remember. The son of two illustrators, he began his formal art training in high school and continued his education at the School of Visual Arts, NYC, where he was awarded a four-year scholarship. Joseph's time at college deepened his love for depicting faces, and he began working professionally as a portrait painter immediately upon graduating. Two years later, he won both Best of Show and the People’s Choice Award at the Portrait Society of America’s prestigious International Portrait Competition. Since then, Joseph has painted over a hundred commissioned portraits, and his work hangs in collections across America and the U.K. Whenever he can, Joseph enjoys seeking out paintable subjects in the gardens, fields, and woods surrounding his Vestal home.
