Footnotes

  • PROVENANCE:
    With The Adams Gallery, London

    The Turkish box in the present work is still at Charleston and is thought to have been a gift to Duncan Grant from his aunt Daisy McNeil, perhaps before the First World War. This late summer still life would have been painted at Charleston and shows some of the seasonal fruits grown in the garden. The glass on the left holds three zinnias, a flower Vanessa Bell regularly planted at the house.

    We are grateful to Richard Shone for his assistance in cataloguing this lot.
