I have a painting signed by Dunning. Trying to figure out if it is a reproduction,and I cannot find a picture of it anywhere. It has apples, pears, ornages, grapes & dates on a table with a wine decanter and glass. If anyone has any information I would appreciate it.
Does anyone know if Dunning was married to Emma?
Still Life Arrangement from Collection of Henry Melville FullerHolly Kelley-Pigg
I am in possession of a painting entitled "Still Life Arrangement" signed by R. S. Dunning with an inscription on the back "From the Collection of Henry Melville Fuller". I have researched both artist and collector online but would welcome any other information
Does anyone have knowledge of Dunning only using the name Robert Spear as a signature on his paintings? This painting is an 1800s main street winter scene, several people walking past buildings, bundled up. Two who stand out, one a woman with a red scarf, the second,a man smoking a pipe. Signed Robert Spears only, unless the Dunning is below the robert Spears and covered by the frame. Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Jamie
Dunning - I think!!!Richard J. Lyons
In the mid-twenties,when my then 40 year old father was riding the waves of the economic boom, he purchased several oil paintings which were of the Fall River School of Art.
One of these paintings was a beautiful still life of a box of strawberries tipped on its side, with a goodly portion of the berries spilled on a polished table top.
In his later years, Dad told me this painting was from the Fall River School of Art, and I believe he said the painting was by Dunning. My parents lived in Fall River for their lifetimes, both dying in the late 40's.
Dad had told me that Dunning visited his office (Bennett Building) on a regular basis, since artists, even outstanding ones, had the universal art problem of difficult sales.
These comments are getting a little prolific so I will end this saga here. If anyone has any further knowledge of this painting, I would be delighted to hear from them.
