Early American, Tea Cakes and Sherry

Close up of Early American, Tea Cakes and Sherry

A full crystal sherry glass and plate mounded with raisins and iced cakes occupy the middle ground of a still-life photograph. Luscious green grapes sit in the left foreground, and greenery rises in the background. The image explicitly imitates18th-century, still-life paintings.
