Still-life study of fruit and a bottle of wine, oil on canvas, signed with monogram I.A.F. and dated 1904 to the lh side of the green apple.

Condition/Notes : The oil painting depicts a collection of fruit around a bottle of wine set on a wooden table with a carved back-board. The painting has been signed to the lh side of the green apple with a monogram IAF and dated 1904 below. The detail of the carved back-board stands out in the study and imparts a depth to the scene. There are a few small areas where the paint has been scratched - to the lh side of the knife handle, between the first and second fruit, at the frame edge above the second fruit and above the bananas. Apart from these marks there are no major defects. The canvas is quite taut. The frame does not appear to be the original as the stretcher is much older. The back of the frame is plain wood and the mitres are pinned by modern style angle staples. The stretcher is made from older wood with tension wedges fitted. The canvas is nailed to the stretcher. There is faded black ink print on the canvas but only "London W" can be made out at this time. Screw eyes and cord are fitted. This is an interesting work which will benefit from identification of the artist I.A.F.
