Mona, you are correct!

The artist is Martin Johnson Heade and the painting is "Orchid and Hummingbird near a Mountain Waterfall" (1902). It can be seen at the Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza, Prado, Madrid, Spain.

I was just in Boston the other day and saw a few paintings by Martin Johnson Heade in the new Americas Wing of the Museum of Fine Arts.

Oh, I'm quite envious. Dear friends used to live in the Boston area, but I haven't been back since they left. So haven't seen the new wing. It's a museum I've always liked and good food in the restaurant too!

I used to love seeing their collection of the works of the Wyeth family, Andrew especially. Beautiful texture to his work. But there was a nice little exhibition of Wyeth work at the Dulwich Picture Gallery about a year ago. I'd never been there before-lovely little gallery.

This has always been a fun forum.

Who is this artist and what is the name of the painting?

The artist is Georges Braque - the painting is The Round Table.

And that style of table is still to be found throughout France even after all these years, obviously a "keeper".

You are absolutely correct!

The painting is "The Round Table" (1929) by Georges Braque.

How about trying to identify another painting by a famous artist?

Who is the (European) artist of this painting?
