Finney’s interest in gardens and plants such as varieties of old roses and auriculas ‚Äì all deeply unfashionable at the time ‚Äì is typical of the originality and independence of his vision. His unbridled enthusiasm for plants was shared with Charles Mahoney,  with whom he swapped cuttings by post. In common with Mahoney’s plant studies Finneys are so remarkably complete in their own right that it is barely possible to attempt to mark a line between botanical study and still life. The two became one and the same; and although some of his compositions were clearly arranged, they rarely appear contrived.
