Commentary from Maas Gallery site
Fanny Minns was a flower painter of independent means who studied art in Dresden, illustrated books and painted pottery. She lived in Carisbrook on the Isle of Wight (the castle can be seen across the fields in the painting). Old man's beard, berries, and dog roses proliferate.
