The Amon Carter Museum of American Art has added an important painting to its collection. Peaches and Grapes in a Chinese Export Basket (1813) by Raphaelle Peale (1774–1825) was recently purchased in memory of the museum’s founder Ruth Carter Stevenson (1913–2013). The painting will be on view beginning July 29 in the main gallery. Considered the first American still-life artist, Peale often found objects for his compositions among the fruits growing at his father’s estate in Philadelphia. Peaches and Grapes in a Chinese Export Basket is one of the artist’s earliest signed and dated pictures.
