LOT DETAILS

"Untitled: Still Life with Potatoes", signed lower left, Victorian-era oil on canvas circa 1900, 38.1 x 63.5cm (15 x 25in); two old repairs to canvas; Provenanace: this painting was given to a friend of Miss King's when they were both young, a woman named Miss E.Cameron (local resident of Paris, Ontario), who had this painting for many years and was in her late eighties when she decided to sell; Miss C.B. King was a resident of upstate New York, and the story is that one afternoon this burlap sack full of potatoes fell on the floor, when Miss King announced "leave it how it is, I want to paint it"; it is a very stunning work with exceptional detail - donated by M.L. and S. Roxborough, Paris, Ontario
