A nicely painted work of Boston-born still life painter CHARLES STORER (1817-1907), the subject red roses, painted on gray art board, measuring 10" by 14" (15 1/2" by 19 1/4" framed). The artist signed at center left edge and dated the painting 1901. This is an excellent example of still life work of the period in New England. Storer was born in Boston, He exhibited at the Boston Art Club and the National Academy. Most existing paintings appear to date to near the end of the artist's life. At least one work by Storer has exceeded $10,000 at auction. He was also a talented watercolorist. Orchids, painted in both watercolor and oil, seem to have been a particularly favorite subject. This painting is in generally sound condition. It could benefit from a light cleaning, and inpainting of a two inch curved light scratch in the rose at upper left. Frame, likely the original, has small losses consistent with its age.
