About this artwork

Although Royds had travelled extensively and lived in both Canada and India, she always enjoyed depicting the simple, yet beautiful, things around her. This included her daughter growing up, and flowers in both full-bloom and in their dying days. ‘Dead Tulips’ shows a jug of drooping tulips, with several of the stems no longer with petals. The pale yellow stalks give a gentle rhythm to the composition.
