Copy of "The Little Fruit-Seller", After Bartolomé Esteban Murillo 1880-1890

19th-Century

About the Item

An impressive 19th-century copy of "The Little Fruit-Seller", after Bartolome Esteban Murillo (Spanish, 1617 - 1682), by an unknown artist (19th-Century). This rendition of Murillo's well-known c.1670-1675 painting depicts the same subject matter and composition of the often copied original; two young fruit sellers counting coins beside a basket overflowing with grapes. The two figures sit on a stone ledge with a beautiful landscape of rolling hills unfolding behind them. In this wonderful 19th-century version of the painting, the artist uses a soft, luminous style and rich color palette. Unsigned. Presented in an ornate antique Neoclassical carved giltwood frame. Linen size: 11.4"H x 9.8"W. The original "The Little Fruit-Seller", a c.1670-1675 oil on canvas painting by Bartolomé Esteban Murillo (Spanish, 1617 - 1682), is held at the Alte Pinakothek, a museum of old master works in Munich, Germany, to which it was bequeathed in 1768 by Franz Joseph von Dufresne. Bartolomé Esteban Murillo was a masterful Spanish painter of the 17th-Century. Born 1617/18 in Seville. He received his first training from Juan de Castillo. Between 1648-50 he stayed in Madrid, where he studied the works of Rubens, Van Dyck and Velazquez, under whose influence his mature style and the late "estilo vaporoso" developed. In 1660, as the leading master of Seville, he founded a painters' academy, of which he was elected the first president. Murillo employed numerous assistants and had many successors. He died in Seville in 1682.
