STILL LIFE: YELLOW APPLES AND CHESTNUTS SPILLING FROM A BASKET
Artwork images are copyright of the artist or assignee
Born in Philadelphia, John Francis became a key artist in the mid-19th century revival of still life painting in America but was not recognized during his lifetime. His focus was "luncheon" or "dessert" type subjects, which he rendered in bright, radiant color, a breaking away from the stern mode taught by the Peale family of artists in Philadelphia.

His style is highly realistic and arguably fits the criteria of trompe l'oeil in that the objects are to scale, are arranged on a flat plan (showing 500 of 2957 characters).
