      CHARLES ETHAN PORTER (1847 - 1923)
      Still Life with Roses.

      Oil on linen canvas, circa 1885-87. 254x404 mm; 10x16 inches. Signed in oil, lower right.

      Provenance: private New York collection.

      Porter's elegant floral still life is a distinctive arrangement on a marble ledge. The elaborate and off center composition is an unusual one for the artist. Porter's focused realism and his use of flowers, holly and other greens found in nature are signs of his post-Paris period.
