James Stewart Park - Still Life James Stewart Park was born in Kidderminster, England, but he spent most of his childhood in Ayrshire, Scotland. He began his artistic studies at the Glasgow School of Art and continued in Paris, under Jules Joseph Lefevre , Gustav Boulanger and Fernand Cormon . However, it was only in 1888, after painting in his spare time, that Stewart Park took up painting professionally. Stewart Park is most well known for his carefully arranged bouquets of flowers and a highly developed individual painting technique in which he used thick and rapid strokes, often against a dark background. His floral subjects are not always defined, but rather are suggested through color and texture, a clear indication of Stewart Park’s interest in the decorative effects of paint. Although he rarely exhibited in England, Stewart Park’s paintings were regularly shown at the royal Scottish Academy and annually at the Glasgow institute. His works were also widely collected , particularly in the West of Scotland, where he had a strong following. James Stewart Park has sometimes been associated with the Glasgow Boys and whilst he did exhibit with them, was never a central member of the group. He died in Kilmarnock , where he settled in the late 1890
