Title Painting; John Falter; Oil on Masonite
Object Name Painting
Description Oil painting on Masonite. Image is of still life with fruit and a pitcher on a wooden surface/table beyond which is an outdoor setting with field, tree and foliage. In the left foreground is a knife next to a strawberry to the right of which is a silver lidded glass pitcher. In front of this is half a lime and a strawberry in the right foreground. These forms in the foreground are rendered very large and dominate the whole; those on the right appear unfinished and less detailed than the pitcher and forms on the left. Was a preliminary idea for a magazine cover, specifically for House Beautiful, circa 1950.
