Mary A Hull, Still Life With Plums, Peach & Wasp

This fine 19th-century still life painting by British artist Mary A Hull (1835-1919) depicts two plums, a peach and a greedy wasp gnawing away. It’s nicely rendered with particular attention to the insect.

Hull was a drawing teacher and a specialist still life painter. One of her works appeared at the Royal Academy and it’s easy to see why.

The inclusion of the wasp here could be a reference to the fleeting nature of life itself. Signed, framed and glazed.
