Oil on Canvas

Zinnias were Clementine Hunter's favorite flower but on occasion she would paint many of the other flowers that surrounded her in the gardens of Melrose Plantation. In this painting we see a bouquet of Spider Lilies. Her version of the elongated petallike parts wrap around the center and appear to be moving, like a pinwheel. It was originally part of the Dr. & Mrs. Robert F. Ryan collection. He probably commissioned Clementine Hunter to paint it. It was exhibited in the New Orleans Museum of Art's "A Centennial Salute to Clementine Hunter" in 1985. At that time, it was titled "Spider Lilies." It has also been referred to as "Pinwheels" as it is now listed on page 154 of "Painting by Heart" by Shelby R. Gilley.
