Eastern Rose Garden
Hannah Holliday Stewart (1924 - 2010) exhibited in over 40 venues including The Smithsonian, Washington, DC; the San Francisco Museum of Art; the High Museum of Art, Atlanta, Georgia; the Dallas Museum of Fine Arts and others. Her artwork and her career were instrumental to the increased recognition of women sculptors in the United States.
Stewart was based in Houston for most of her career, and held teaching positions at St. Thomas University and the University of Houston. Early in her time in Texas, Stewart caught the eye of the state's top collectors with a series of bronze fountains. Her monumental fountain Libertad was installed at Houston's World Trade Center in 1962, and Butterfly Fountain appeared in Samuell Park in Dallas in the early 1960's. Eastern Rose Garden is a maquette for another such fountain, though it is unclear whether it was completed.
