Notes:
Six flower studies are known from the Mackintoshes' visit to the Scilly Isles. This one shows the favourite garden plant, the Carnation, derived from Dianthus caryophyllus and its hybrids. Carnations provided the subject for one of Mackintoshes later still-lives, "Pinks", c. 1925 (Glasgow Art Gallery and Museum).
