Still Life with Roses and Grapes

Morston Constantine Ream (American, 1840-1898)

Oil-on-canvas, signed and dated "Morston Ream/75" on the stretcher.

Provenance: The Chrysler Museum, Norfolk, VA.

Painting size: 24" x 18"
Frame size: 31" x 25"

A painter from Cleveland, Ohio, Ream began his career in the arts while working as an assistant to photographer, James F. Ryder. He later moved to New York City and made a name for himself as a successful painter of still lifes. Ream presumably shipped his paintings back to Cleveland in the 1870's and Ryder exhibited them in his gallery, an extension of his photographic studio.
