Benjamin Blake: A Larder with Fish and Ducks

hover over image to zoom

Artist: Benjamin Blake

A still life larder scene showing a harvest from on, and under the water. Painted in oil on an oak panel by Benjamin Blake (1757-1830) and within a period rosewood frame.

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.
