I recently received an email from collector Jennifer Trimble who had an interesting story about how she obtained the two M. Devoe paintings shown above.

It turns out that Jennifer recently bought 15-20 framed paintings for the frames - she was not interested in what the frames contained.  When she was deconstructing two of the frames she said that something didn't feel right about them. When she finished taking them apart she could see that someone had put paintings in the frames over whatever was already in the two frames. And what was in the two frames?  The two M. Devoe flower paintings shown above.  Jennifer knew nothing about M. Devoe or their paintings until she found this blog.

As we have seen before, Devoe's paintings of flowers are not as common as their paintings of tropical birds.  Jennifer gladly offered to share photos of her two Devoe paintings and so here they are.  

We know there are more Devoe paintings out there - let's hope that someone can also uncover the story of M. Devoe  so they mystery surrounding him or her can finally be resolved.

Thanks again to Jennifer Trimble for sharing her Devoe paintings with us.


  1. I have a painting of two flamingos signed by M Devoe, but the frame is missing its decorative surface.
    How do i contact Jim Craig and where would I send an image of my painting?
