Great quality still life that was purchased from Anna Airy's studio sale. The picture is almost certainly the central portion of a larger painting that has been cut down and laid onto board. This has not seriously damaged the composition which still works well. The light, shade and reflection on the bottles and fruit is by a highly skilled artist. This painting was sold to me as an Anna Airy and having had a number of her early works over the years, I think the attribution is reasonable. If you follow the link below to a an oil sold at Christie's, you can see why I am happy with the attribution. The price also reflects the complete authentication.
