William Michael Harnett - The Old Violin 1886 Painting

This Irish born, American immigrant artist spent his life painting wonderful paintings, this one in particular is timeless!
“The Old Violin” was created in 1885 and is as beautiful today as it was then.
This style of painting was developed by Mister Harnett and is called ‘trompe l'oeil’ and was the inspiration of many other artists of the day.

Harnett’s pioneering form of art in America was depicted with objects not really the subject of the piece, making his style quite provocative in that day. These collections make wonderful pieces for music based businesses or simply to decorate one’s home.
