This still life is both a study in trompe l'oeil and design. As an academician of the National Academy of Design, Farnsworth taught and was widely exhibited. Here he combines a traditional subject matter with the experiment of using fracturing lines of thin bright colors to dissect the plane of the scene and outline the objects.
