The Larder by Benjamin Blake

hover over image to zoom

Artist: Benjamin Blake

Originally from Wiltshire, Blake (fl1790-1830) worked for most of his life in London, producing small, gem-like larder and game scenes. This game larder hung with a hare, duck and snipes, on the shelf below a pheasant, lark and a woodcock. This piece is typical of Blake’s work which owes much to seventeenth-century Dutch prototypes. It is interesting to learn that Blake was employed by dealers to copy old Dutch pictures, some of which were not sold under his own name. Painted in oil on canvas, within the original gilt gesso frame.

English circa 1820.
