Trompe l'Oeil Painting
Albert Francis King was born in 1854 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and was described by some critics as Pittsburgh's primary still-life painter of the 19th century. His subjects included fruit, vegetables and fish, depicted in compositions reflecting preparations for a meal, in the spirit of Jean-Bapiste-Simeon Chardin, the great 18th Century French painter of still-life.

His parents had immigrated from Germany to escape religious persecution, and changed their name from Konig to King in (showing 500 of 2245 characters).
