Published by J.Lyons and Co. Ltd. Printed by Chromoworks Ltd, London.

The artist had been commissioned to make a lithograph of this subject for J. Lyons & Co., which was used to decorate their tea-shops. He wrote (14 February 1953) that this still life ‘was painted after I produced the lithograph’. It follows the latter closely in composition.

Laid down on board.
Barnett Freedman PortraitBritish painter, lithographer, illustrator and designer. At 15, Freedman's talent for drawing led to jobs as a draughtsman for a monumental mason, then for an architect.

After five years' evening study at St Martin's School of Art, London, he won a scholarship to the Royal College of Art (1922–5), where he later became a teacher himself. As a painter, Freedman was neither reactionary nor avant-garde; traditional subject-matter, in a subdued but contemplative manner, gave little hint of his ebullient personality.

He is remembered chiefly as a pioneer of colour autolithography for machine production at the Curwen and Baynard presses, which he achieved by transferring drawings on stone to offset plates.
