About the Artist
John Frederick Peto (1854–1907) was a still-life painter who was greatly influenced by his friend and contemporary William Michael Harnett. Many of his works were misattributed to Harnett, but can be differentiated by their looser brushwork, warm tonality, and aura of subtle melancholy created by Peto's tendency to represent objects deteriorated by age.
