Janet Fish’s 1995 picnic still life, titled Provence, depicts containers, fruit, wine, and flowers on a blanket in the grass.

The Gazo “San Juan Bautista” Carved Walnut Tall Case (or Grandfather) Clock, made in the last quarter of the 20th century in Renaissance style by the famous 19th century American cabinetmaker RJ Horner, has an ancient Tiffany Glass and Decorating Company movement (1892-1900).
