(1851 - 1935)
Levi Wells Prentice was active/lived in New York, Connecticut. Levi Prentice is known for still life, naive landscape and portrait painting.
Born in Lewis County, New York in the Adirondack Mountains, he earned a
reputation for painting still lifes in landscape, although he began his
career painting only the landscape. His still lifes were of two types,
either arrangements placed in the landscape or close-ups of fruit
growing on trees or falling out of baskets.
He was raised on a farm from where he painted
the mountain landscape of Lewis County and also painted in the vicinity
of Buffalo and Syracuse. In 1883, he moved to Brooklyn, New York, where
he worked as a carpenter, frame- maker, and art teacher and also began
painting still lifes objects, something that by 1894, he focused on
exclusively, especially highly polished and well defined apples.
