He had started painting his first portraits by 1839, and in 1843 changed his name from Heed to Heade. Heade’s paintings show a great influence of his surroundings, as seen by the wide depiction of Florida’s eastern coast and the tropical vegetation and marshes of St. Augustine.

Martin Johnson Heade. 1819 - 1904 Inducted in 1995. A major figure in late 19th Century American art, Martin Johnson Heade spent the last 21 years of his life as a resident of St. Some of his most important works were created there, brilliant floral paintings of coastal environs, flowers and wildlife that ultimately became his signature expression. A native of the small hamlet of Lumberville in Bucks County Pennsylvania, Heade is believed by art historians to have received his first art training from the folk artist Edward Hicks, who lived in the area.

His painting style and subject matter, while derived from the romanticism of the time, are regarded by art historians as a significant departure from those of his peers.

Martin Johnson Heade’s The Great Florida Sunset has had two owners in the last hundred years, Henry Morrison Flagler and most recently, A. Alfred Taubman

Martin Johnson Heade’s The Great Florida Sunset has had two owners in the last hundred years, Henry Morrison Flagler and most recently, A. Alfred Taubman. In 1887, Flagler commissioned Heade to paint The Great Florida Sunset to decorate the grand Spanish Renaissance style Hotel Ponce de León, designed by Carrère and Hastings, which he was building in St. The ambitious painting, the largest of Heade’s career, remained in the hotel which, in 1964, became Flagler College.

"Heade was the first artist of national repute to make his home in Florida.  He brought the Hudson River school to the St. Johns River.  An avid outdoorsman, he spoke out for preservation of the state's natural resources both in his writings and, most memorably, in his magnificent landscape paintings and portraits of flowers."--Thomas Graham, Flagler CollegeRoberta Favis tells the story of the last two decades of the life and artistic career of Martin Johnson Heade (1819-1904), when the peripatetic painter settled permanently in St. Augustine, Florida. Providing generous illustrations in both black and white and color, she reassesses his career and importance by focusing on this late period of his work and looking more closely at his local context and the contemporary issues particular to the state that became his home.The history of Heade's career in Florida is, like many Florida stories, a complicated interplay between the forces of tourism and development and the rich natural beauty of the state. Favis closely examines Heade's relation to the development of tourism in St. Augustine and uses his writings to show his sometimes conflicting attitudes toward development and conservation.  He artistically celebrated the beauties of the state being touted as "the new Eden," but he was an active participant in the projects of Henry Flagler to transform St. Augustine into a mecca for northern tourists, while his writings expressed concern that the pristine environment and its inhabitants were already threatened. In words and in pictures, Heade spoke of the vitality, beauty, and the fragility of Florida. Combining his biography, art, and writing, Favis captures an early chapter in the history of art in Florida and brings to light an early and compelling advocate for the preservation of the state's natural riches.Roberta Smith Favis is professor of art at Stetson University and the author of numerous exhibit catalogs and articles.

Favis does a great job of contexting Heade's work, style, years in Florida.
This is exactly what I wanted.
I wish there were more color plates but with few exceptions, I always do!
I plan to google all work done by Heade in Florida.
I am a longtime resident of Florida. One of my friends owns an original Heade that is magical.
Did Heade paint the Paradise of Florida?
I have to agree with Favis that he did.

Poor no pictures . Too many words not enough art

Better books on Heade exist. What this one does is to include some you may have passed by. I don't think much of all the flower close-ups. If you want a good, general book on Heade, look elsewhere.
