“Squirrel's Feast” by Frederick Stone Batcheller

Oil on Wood Panel “Squirrel's Feast” by Frederick Stone Batcheller (American, 1837-1889) Frederick Batcheller Started His Career as a Sculptor, having Apprenticed as a Young Man Under the Tingley Brothers in his Hometown of Providence, Rhode Island. He Transitioned to Painting and Eventually Turned all His Attentions to this Pursuit in 1855, Joining the Providence Artists James Morgan Lewin, John Arnold, Thomas Robinson, and Marcus Waterman as the “Group of 1855”. His Primary Focus was on Still-Life Paintings with a Heavy Emphasis on Floral Arrangements and Inanimate Objects; However, his Paintings of the Natural World and its Wildlife Inhabitants are Particularly Moving. This Work is an Excellent Example of this, where the Small Squirrel sitting on Top of the Basket is the Focal Point of the Work, Dwarfed by its Surroundings and the Powerful Aged Trees, with a Second Squirrel About to Join in the Feast. The Richness of Dark Color Brings a New Perspective to this Wooded Paradise, a Small Creature’s Home and Creates an Illusion of Looking Through a Round Port into this Magical Space. Excellent Condition, Size with Frame: 9-3/4" x 8-3/4" Sight Size: 5-1/2" x 6-3/4"
