19th century German still life painter Emelie Preyer shows her characteristic touch with the textural surface and beautifully balanced color of these simple fruits and nuts.

Her composition is thoughtfully conceived, and the value and color relationships lead your eye inexorably around and through the painting.

Emelie Prier’s primary teacher was likely her father, Johann Wilhelm Preyer, who was also a superb still life painter.
