John Held, Jr. (1889-1958)

Gardenia blossom with red cocktail at left. 

Painting, “Gardenia #33” 1935;

Watercolor, 11 x 13" signed lower right.
The paper is gorgeous, handmade, heavily-toothed watercolor paper, and the work is archivally matted and framed in a narrow, bevelled, stained-wood moulding.

This is not an illustration; the artist produced numerous watercolors of flowers, but not often with a cocktail.
