    William Mason Brown (American, 1828-

    1898)

    STILL LIFE WITH WATERMELON, FRUIT AND

    CALLA LILLIES

    Signed with conjoined initials lower left W M Brown

    Oil on canvas

    Unframed

    19 3/4 x 16 in.

    A letter from Dr. William H. Gerdts authenticating this

    $20,000-40,000

    Provenance: Purchased in New York in the 1950s by a

    prominent theater entertainment family

    Thence by descent

    We are grateful to Dr. William H. Gerdts, Professor

    Emeritus of Art History, Graduate School of the City

    University of New York for preparing the following:

    I have examined the vertical painting of watermelon,

    grapes, and an apple, situated in a landscape, and

    signed WMBrown. This is the artists typical signature,

    but more, the painting is very much in Browns manner.

    Comparisons with other works by him--the manner in

    which he highlights both green and purple grapes; the

    larger watermelon with the roughened interior, though

    not with the deep cuts sometimes found in his work; the

    beautifully rendered apple; and not only the use of dir[t]

    and stony ground plane, but that particular formation of

    ground plane, is very typical of Brown and can be found

    in numerous other works painted by him which situated

    his fruit subjects in the out-of-doors. In my opinion this is

    a work by William Mason Brown.
