A lovely example of a still life of apples, strawberries and plums set against a mossy ground, painted by one of the Midlands best known and loved artists.
Oliver Clare was the son of George Clare and the brother of Vincent, all of whom were prolific artists. His paintings were mainly still life containing fruit and garden flowers, often on mossy banks. He exhibited thirty nine paintings at the Royal Society of Birmingham Artists, three at the Walker Art Gallery, Liverpool, six at Manchester City Art Gallery and two at Suffolk Street. He also exhibited at the Royal Academy. Clare’s paintings often depict ripe fruit or fresh blossom nestling on a bank with a hint of dew, and are always well finished with brushstrokes that are invisible to the eye.
The work is housed in a new, English made giltwood frame, which is in excellent condition.
