Originally from Wiltshire, Blake (fl1790-1830) worked for most of his life in London, producing small, gem-like larder and game scenes. This small work is typical of Blake’s work which owes much to seventeenth-century Dutch prototypes. It is interesting to learn that Blake was employed by dealers to copy old Dutch pictures, some of which were not sold under his own name.
