Around the same time as Charles was filling sketchbooks with drawings of flowers from the family garden and other whimsical scenes, his parents hired Letty Purple of nearby Columbia to teach Charles china painting and pyrography in order to support his artistic interests. Currently on display are examples of Demuth's early china painting from the museum's permanent collection.

Between the ages of eight and ten, Charles filled at least three sketchbooks containing examples of his first artistic compositions. These included many early depictions of flowers from his mother's garden from which he drew inspiration throughout his entire career. Currently on display is one of Demuth's childhood sketchbooks as well as two newly framed pages displayed for the very first time.

Did you know that the Demuth Garden used to stretch all the way back to Mifflin Street? The garden was then converted to a parking lot in 1960. However, in 1984 some of the asphalt was removed to find most of the bricks still in place, revealing the shapes of the original flower beds.

Coming up! Join us for the First Friday opening reception for Focus on Flora on May 3 from 5-8 pm at the Demuth Museum!
Charles Demuth’s watercolors of flowers from his mother’s garden nestled in downtown Lancaster are some of his strongest works. His florals feature a variety of types of flowers and his treatment of each evolved over his lifetime. This exhibition will include some of his earliest depictions of flowers from a childhood sketchbook and works he completed over three decades later as an adult.
