$ 1,100.00

Details: Early 20th Century Abundant Still Life attributed to John F. Francis (1808-1886) who was an American painter that became a key figure in the mid-19th century revival of still life painting in America. His work is known for its bright colors and often depicts staple crops of the United States, such as melons, peaches, grapes, and apples. Francis also incorporated the mannerisms of Dutch Baroque still-life painting, particularly the "banquet piece" format that features a table loaded with food and drink. This particular oil on canvas is signed by the artist (surname ending in "stein") on the lower left. The hues in the color palette, lighting and wonderful textures that emerge from the objects shows that a skilled artist created this piece, however, it is difficult to make out their entire name. Framed in a beveled wood finished in a burnished gold. 

Dimensions: 37.25"w x 1.75"d x 25.25"h Art=34"w x 22"h (8 lbs)

Condition: The piece was cleaned and re-stretched professionally in 2012, however, has significant rippling in the upper left portion of the canvas and some crazing throughout. The frame has a few minor nicks and the dust jacket on the back is torn.
