Link to this object

Helen Searle grew up in Rochester and taught art in Batavia, New York. In 1860, she moved to Dusseldorf to study with the distinguished painter Johan Wilhelm Preyer, whose still lifes were considered the finest in Germany (see below). He took a particular interest in Searle, and it is clear that she was greatly influenced by him. Preyer, in turn, was a devoté of 17th century Dutch artist Jan de Heem, whose work is on view on MAG’s second floor.
