Autumn Fruits, Currier & Ives

D'Amour Museum of Fine Arts

Collection of fruit including peaches, blackberries, plums, melon, grapes, pears and apples.

The bounty of the American land is celebrated through this still life of fruit. The composition is well-balanced and beautifully colored with the dark grapes contrasting with the melon and echoed by the black raspberries in the foreground.
