Description

Still Life: Flowers and Fruit (1850 and 1855) by Severin Roesen (American, b. Prussia, 1816–1872), an exceptionally large still life in The Met collection, represents the artist at his best. It is undated but was probably painted in the mid-19th century when he was living in New York. The brilliant color, technical virtuosity, and elaborate, tightly-packed composition are all characteristic of someone who trained as a porcelain painter, while the bountiful subject is a lush example of the Victorian proclivity for abundance.
