Opulent Still Life
Artwork images are copyright of the artist or assignee
Robert Spear Dunning was a founder in Massachusetts of the Fall River School*, which emphasized still life paintings.  He painted portraits and landscapes, but in 1865, his interest turned to still-life painting, which brought him notice and critical acclaim.

His highly realistic or "trompe l'oeil"* paintings usually had one or more prominent large objects such as a silver pitcher with luscious looking fruit on a highly polished table.  His early work was dark in color a (showing 500 of 5300 characters).
