This painting is related to two other still-life subjects that Fussell painted in 1891 when he resided in Brooklyn: Still Life with Vegetables (private collection),1 and Still Life, Fish (Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts). Fussell was an accomplished still-life painter, and later produced some impressive trompe l’oeil compositions.
