Still Life with Fruit, Cheese, Wine, Milk, Cakes and Peppermint Sticks

Still Life with Fruit, Cheese, Wine, Milk, Cakes and Peppermint Sticks

Monumental in scale, this magnificent American folk art still life is signed “Durand del” signifying that the artist was proud of being a delineator or print maker by profession. The composition, abundant with cheese, fruit, cakes and peppermint sticks seemingly floating on marble shelves, is striking against the black back drop.
