The Amon Carter Museum in Fort Worth has announced the the acquisition of Peaches and Grapes in a Chinese Export Basket (1813) by Raphaelle Peale (1774–1825).
Though they have works by William Harnett, William McCloskey and John F. Peto, the new still life is the Carter’s only work by Raphaelle, the black sheep of the Peales, a family of noted artist/scientists in turn-of-the-ninteenth-century Philadelphia. It was purchased in memory of the museum’s founder Ruth Carter Stevenson (1913–2013) and will be on view July 29 in the main gallery beginning July 29.
