George Cochran Lambdin was especially noted for the floral still life subjects that he began to paint around 1857. He settled in the Germantown section of Philadelphia and cultivated a garden famous for its roses. Son of the well-known portrait painter James Reid Lambdin, he was trained by his father and studied in Europe. Lambdin spent his career in Philadelphia except for trips to Europe, and two years in New York. He exhibited regularly at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in Philadelphia from 1848 to 1888 and was elected a member of the National Academy of Design in 1868. He exhibited at the Paris Exposition in 1867 and at the Royal Academy in London in 1858.
Lambdin was friends with a fellow artist, Maimi Lily, from West Berlin, NJ. She had a Victorian Garden and Lambdin, being well known for his floral subjects, would visit her and they would paint together. He painted this piece for her and named it “Peaceful Grove.”
