This fine oil painting on canvas has been executed to a very high standard depicting a wicker basket full of fruit, sitting on a table.
There is the appearance of natural light within the painting which is greatly enhanced by the white tablecloth which has beautifully illuminated the detailed foliage, bunches of purple, red and white grapes, an half eaten pomegranate, apples, a lemon, a pear and, most interestingly, two cactus pears.
These are the edible fruit of the prickly pear cactus, as species formerly native only to the Americas, but now available in various warmer climates throughout the world.
The fruit has to be carefully prepared to remove the fine hairy spines, but spineless varieties have been cultivated now.

Because of the inclusion of this fruit, we surmise that the artist may be American, as we have never seen this fruit in the UK.

The painting is framed in a 4" reverse spoon shaped gilt frame and white linen slip and will be supplied wired and ready to hang.
