Description Like many female artists, Gerardina Bakhuyzen entered the profession through a family member—she was trained by her father, a painter of animals. Bakhuyzen achieved great success with her flower paintings, exhibiting widely, both at home and abroad, and winning many awards between 1870 and 1880. This was unusual for a woman at this time. William T. Walters purchased four watercolors of flowers from Bakhuysen to add to his growing collection of 19th-century European drawings.
