American artist Otto Henry Bacher produced this still life in the year he departed for Europe to enroll in Munich’s Academy of Fine Arts. Here, a simple pink candle provides a counterpoint to a finely detailed pitcher, drawing the spectator’s eye into the mirror, where the artist has signed the work. In a 1921 review, Cleveland Museum of Art librarian William McKee panned the painting for its gold background, describing it as “an experiment in the Byzantine and the Primitive way of working not in the best taste.”
