Item Details
Description
Philip Fishbourne Wharton (American, 1841-1880) "Grapes,"oil on canvas, signed, original frame and stretcher. Professionally cleaned and relined. Philip Wharton was a Philadelphia-born artist who explored a range of themes including portraits, genre, history, and still-life. Wharton was the son of Fishbourne Wharton (1778–1846), merchant, and his second wife Mary Ann Shoemaker, and the grandson of Governor Thomas Wharton Jr. He studied at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, and later in Paris and Dresden. His best-known pictures are "Perdita", which received a medal at the Centennial Exposition of 1876, "Eventide", "Uncle Jim", "Over the Hills and Far Away," and " Waiting for the Parade". He also painted many watercolors, chiefly scenes in Florida and Nassau. Wharton exhibited twice at the prestigious juried annual exhibitions at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, as well as in the Philadelphia Centennial Exhibition. He was one of a handful of illustrators on the field in active combat during the Civil War and appears to have captured battles in the Virginia theatre of battle. His work is owned by the Reading Public Museum and Constitution Hall in Philadelphia. Size: 6.75'' x 13.75'', 17 x 35 cm (stretcher); 12.75'' x 19.75'', 32 x 50 cm (frame).
