From the Museum

This larger work and some smaller little gems by the American artist John Frederick Peto really caught my eye last year at the Smithsonian Museum in Washington DC. Peto is mainly associated with the art of Trompe-l'oeil painting but he also created lots of straight forward still life compositions. They have a great grouping of his paintings at the Smithsonian and I remember really enjoying them - their scale, design and sensibility.

Though to share them with you here.
