Description:
“Quality, quality, nothing but quality—a painter’s picture—which they, always, must be only thankful to enjoy who have learned how to let the subtle appeal of such still life surface stir their emotions into placid pleasure.  In the title is the whole picture, yet who but a painter and those the painters have taught—or those, more fortunate, born with the feeling for these natural effects, of which art is the hand-maiden and interpreter to the general—sees unaided the soft charm and allure of this dull lustre of metal?  For emphasis, contrast and relief, there is depicted near by, on the same table, a blue-and-white pitcher and other occasional objects, the pitcher rendered with the same sympathetic and appreciative sense of quality and form.” [from American Art Galleries, Madison Square South, New York, NY, Exhibition Catalog, “Valuable Paintings and Water Colors Forming The Private Collection of William Merritt Chase, N.A.“, March 7-8, 1912, #70, not illustrated.]
