Carducius Plantagenet Ream Photo Portrait

Carducius Plantagenet Ream  1837 - 1917

Carducius Plantagenet Ream became Chicago’s most famous still life painter, and is known best for his paintings of fruit. Peaches were his favorite, and the sliver platter appears in other paintings.

Carducius was the older brother of another famed still life painter, Morston Ream. In his early painting career, Carducius exhibited at the Royal Academy of Art in London, and studied in London, Paris, and Munich. After returning to America, he studied in New York. He was the first artist to be included in the permanent collection of the Art Institute of Chicago. He was a prosperous artist, and exhibited at the Brooklyn Art Association from 1872 -1879, the Royal Academy of London in 1892 and 1898 and at the Art Institute of Chicago from 1894 - 1909.
