Just give me the cherries.. Conversation Piece (1852) was painted by the American artist Lily Martin Spencer (1822-1902). Lily Spencer was breaking ground as a female genre painter in the United States. But just as in many other countries, female artists had substantially fewer opportunities to become successful. But she succeeded eventually, becoming the breadwinner for her household, and raising her 14 children together with her husband. Spencer often painted idealized domestic scenes in which she used her own family as models. And so, it shows herself, her husband, and one of their children in this painting. Just a lovely family scene. And she made sure that she included some items in the background that showed her French heritage, including the Limoges porcelain dishes and the Carcel lamp. #Art #Painting #Artwork #ArtHistory #HistoryofArt #OilPainting #OilonCanvas #FineArts #ArtoftheDay #Spencer #LilySpencer #AmericanArt #AmericanArtist #AmericanPainter #FemaleArtist #FemalePainter #GenrePainting
