George Cope (American, 1855-1929) oil on canvas still life of plums in center bowl with grapes, peach and knife on table. Signed lower left center and signed and dated 1892 on reverse. Overall very good condition with no visible losses. Gilt frame has some wear. Sight: 11 5/8" H x 9 1/2" W, Framed:15 5/8" H x 13 1/2" W. Biography (courtesy AskART) – George Cope was born in Western Chester County, Pennsylvania, the son of Quaker parents. He taught himself to draw while attending school, and in 1876 took painting lessons from the Philadelphia artist Herman Herzog (1832¨ß1932). During the late 1880s he began to paint trompe l'oeil pictures, and shortly thereafter he turned his attention to table top still lifes; both types of works reflect the influence of William Michael Harnett (1848-1892).
