Sun and Moon Flowers, By George Dunlop Leslie, R.A. (1835-1921).
In the Guildhall Art Gallery, London.

This picture was painted in 1890, from one of the windows of the artist’s drawing-room at Wallingford, Oxfordshire, looking out over the garden to the meadow on the opposite bank of the river.

“ In the picture some of the sunflowers are the usual bright yellow ones, and others, which I call moon flowers, are far paler. It is painted on canvas, very simply”

From the book “Famous Paintings” printed in 1913.
