Joseph Decker (American, 1853-1924): Still Life with Fruit. Oil on canvas, artist's name is painted into the composition, framed.

A creator of still life in the 1880s and 1890s, Joseph Decker painted in both hard-edged and soft styles that conveyed sentimentality and included subjects that ranged from fruit still lifes to his pet squirrel. He was first known for his harsh paintings that were full of vibrating color, but his later works were more misty, soft, and conventional.

29 1/2 x 36 inches (frame); 20 3/4 x 27 3/4 inches (sight)

Private collection, Canada.
