Picture notes The Otago Daily Times, 11 November 1912, wrote: "'Chrysanthemums' (253) is a large representation of a lady arranging flowers in a bowl. The composition is uncommon yet perfectly natural; the flowers are good enough to be regarded as individual studies, though there is no laboured detail; and the figure, probably a portrait, is painted with marked purity, the flesh tints and the modelling all that could be wished for." How nice if the original exists!
