John Singer Sargent painted "Carnation, Lily, Lily, Rose" between 1885 and 1886, and it has become one of the nation's most popular artworks. The inspiration for the painting came during a boating expedition Sargent took on the Thames at Pangbourne in September 1885, with the American artist Edwin Austin Abbey, during which he saw Chinese lanterns hanging among trees and lilies.
