Who painted this? #35

Who painted this? #35

It's worth mulling over that there's very often a connection between the painting I choose and what I've been writing about in the last week.

I can't tell you how many incredibly boring battle and war paintings I looked at before deciding to try a different tack!

The Brooklyn Museum says this about the painting
An avid sportsman, Winslow Homer often combined his hunting and painting excursions, traveling to remote destinations such as the Adirondacks and Canada in the summer and Florida and Bermuda in the winter. This tropical landscape epitomizes his extraordinary range and facility in the watercolor medium. In addition to wet and dry washes, Homer deployed more experimental techniques such as blotting areas of pigment and rubbing the paper (to create texture with dislodged paper fibers), as seen in the whitish fronds in the center of the picture.

Hi Katherine,
It's been a while since I have gotten one, and I've tried, so no problem on the inadvertent removal.
You mention it here and this is all for fun!
We do learn a little bit more which each search and that's the real point.

Artist.....Roger Eliot Fry
Title....Still life with coffee pot
Date.....1915
Medium......Oil, body colour and collage on cardboard
Where it is....The Courtauld Institute
How I found it ...I thought it was by one of the artists in the Dulwich Gallery show so after some fruitless searching of them by name I tried the words Bloomsbury group, still life and got the image but no location, a bit more searching and I found the location.

Hello Katherine,

The Who Painted This? #35 is
called Still life with coffee pot
and was painted by Roger Eliot Fry
in 1915.
It's an oil, bodycolour and collage on cardboard.
Dimensions: 50 cm x 37 cm

Acquisition
Diamand, Pamela (Mrs.); gift; 1958
P.1958.PD.144
It's held at the The Courtauld Gallery in London (part of The Samuel Courtauld Trust).

I initially searched for still life with banana and then searched for still life with coffee pot and found it. Then I had to find out where it was kept. I went to Courtauld Gallery Site that directed me to artandarchitecture.org.uk.
