Trompe l'Oeil Painting
Born in Clonakilty, Ireland, William Harnett became America's best known "trompe l'oeil" [fool the eye] still-life painter in the later part of the 19th century and is credited with being the most influential in that style and subject matter.  Collectors of this artist need to have a watchful 'eye' because of the many forgeries of Harnett's work.  Likely his most famous painting is After the Hunt, in the collection of The California Palace of the Legion of Honor.
