About

Levi Wells Prentice (1851–1935) Still Life with Peaches in a Silver Bowl, c. 1880 Oil on canvas, 12 x 18 in. Framed dimensions: 17 ¼ x 23 ½ in. Signed lower right: L.W. Prentice Signed on the reverse before relining: L.W. Prentice Photographed Provenance: Christie's, New York, Important American Paintings, Drawings, and Sculpture of the 19th and 20th Centuries, June 1, 1984; private collection, New York Of the large number of still lifes Levi Wells Prentice produced, the majority were fruit pictures. Prentice painted every fruit available to him; most frequently his paintings included apples, peaches, plums, melon, and strawberries arranged on a tabletop or set in natural surroundings. Prentice expert Barbara L. Jones noted that Prentice used “common, everyday objects and utensils. No ornate crystal decanters, no shiny brass materialized from his palette, only simple baskets, bowls, and metal containers that could be found in any household kitchen.” Prentice's work can be found in numerous collections, including the New York Public Library, Onondaga Historical Association, New York; Adirondack Museum, Blue Mountain Lake, New York; Everson Museum of Art, Syracuse, New York; Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; Shelburne Museum, Vermont; Hood Museum of Art, Dartmouth College, Hanover, New Hampshire; Carnegie Museum of Art, Pittsburgh; Montclair Art Museum, New Jersey; Yale University Art Gallery, New Haven, Connecticut; and the Detroit Institute of Arts.
