Nadeau’s Auction Gallery’s Annual Major Fall Americana and Chinese Auction presents an oil painting in the manner of Italian artist Giuseppe Recco. He was among the most influential still-life painters in the 17th century. Recco often painted flowers, fish, and kitchen scenes in the Baroque style. Many of his works drew inspiration from Abraham Breughel and Giuseppe Battista Ruoppolo. The available still life painting depicts a fruit basket with grapes and pomegranates placed atop an elaborate rug. A wooden clock appears in the background.
A diminutive Chippendale mahogany chest also highlights the listings. The piece is named after renowned cabinetmaker Thomas Chippendale. Chippendale furniture rapidly rose in popularity between 1750 and 1780. At the time, it was the only furniture style named after a cabinetmaker instead of a monarch. Bidders can also find a pair of Chippendale side chairs and a tall clock by Asahel Cheney. Explore more items and register to bid online on Bidsquare.
