Description Conservation Exhibitions Provenance Inscription Credit
Description The grapes in this painting have been identified as the Prince Albert variety, which William T. Walters grew at his Govans estate, Saint Mary's. Way was a Baltimore painter who began his career as a portraitist; but, on the advice of the influential Düsseldorf artist Emanuel Leutze (known for his famous work, "Washington Crossing the Delaware," in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York), he turned to still lifes, specializing in such subjects as bunches of grapes and oysters.
