Theorem Still-Life of Fruit in a Footed Bowl
American, probably New England or New York, ca. 1830-1840.
Oil on fine velvet.
Great condition, very minor foxing and toning. Fabric modeled at the top from age effects but not restoration or from damage. In a period molded gilt frame. 20 ½” x 23”. Purchased from Marna Anderson in the mid-1980’s, the theorem has remained in the same collection since. The fruit retains wonderful vibrant colors while lying in this pillar molded bowl with a soft blue hue all coupled in a fantastic composition.
