The Seattle Art Museum has purchased an 1814 painting by Raphaelle Peale, “Still Life with Strawberries and Ostrich Egg Cup,” from the Roy Nutt Family Trust, for an undisclosed sum.

Peale (1774-1825) was the son of artist-naturalist Charles Willson Peale and the brother of portraitist Rembrandt Peale. His painting portrays an eclectic array of objects from his father’s collection, including “a silver mounted ostrich egg from Africa, a Chinese export porcelain pitcher, a celadon bowl, a finely crafted silver spoon, and a gathering of strawberries cultivated on the family’s experimental farm.”
