Oil on canvas painting, unsigned, featuring a cluster of green grapes and apples, a woven basket at upper left, 8 1/4" by 11 1/4", 13 1/2" by 16 1/2" in modern day quality reproduction frame, circa 1880's. The canvas stencil on reverse is of Reeves & Sons, 113 Cheapside, London (the well-known art supplies firm moved to that address in 1857 and remained there until 1890). When acquired this work had attached a modern handwritten note with "Lisa Statt Sterling/1800's". I do not see a listed artist by that name. For the time being this painting will be described as by an anonymous artist. The sedate colors and complementary framing make for a subtle and unobtrusive traditional painting that will work in a lot of interiors. There is a little stretcher bar show-through and a dusty surface but the work is essentially in very good condition considering that it is over 125 years old.
