American Folk Art Fruit Still Life Theorem Painting, circa 1895



An American Folk Art still life painting, or theorem, of fruit, oil on canvas, signed in script A.S. 1895, depicting a free floating large slice of watermelon, grapes, a peach, pear, apple, three strawberries, and cherries on a branch, on a mustard yellow field. In period 19th century mahogany veneered frame. We love the unusual composition of this painting which has a strong affinity with period needlework or felt theorems.
