Severin Roesen (American, born in Prussia, circa 1816 – 1872) was trained as a porcelain painter. He painted this exceptionally large and detailed oil on canvas still life, undated but most likely completed between 1850 and 1855, while he was living in New York. This work measures 40 x 50 3/8 inches (101.6 x 128 cm), and it is on view at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Fifth Avenue, New York City, in Gallery 756. (The first photograph is courtesy of The Met. The others are my photos taken in the gallery July 2017.)
