Lot 441: Clare (George, 1830-1900). A pair of still life paintings of fruit, oil on canvas, one showing plums, grapes, and raspberries, the other with plums, apples and raspberries, both beside a mossy bank, a few superficial marks, each signed lower right, each 15.5 x 23cm (6 x 9ins), matching gilt frames. The Clare family, consisting of George and his sons Oliver (1853-1927) and Vincent (1855-1930), are renowned for their precisely detailed fruit and flower paintings. George's delicate stippling technique and choice of subject matter owes something to the work of William Hunt. (2)
