The Black Tea Pot:
is a painting by Jonas Lie, who died on January 18 in 1940. He was born in Norway but moved to New York City via Paris when he was 13. The Black Teapot is currently on exhibit at the Everson Museum of Art in Syracuse. The museum site says, "The canvas was painted in 1911 and acquired by the museum in 1913 soon after the work had hung at the now famous Armory Show. Held in New York City earlier that same year, the Armory Show constituted America's first large-scale exposure to the work of the European avant-garde."
Wikipedia says, "He is best known for colorful paintings of coastlines of New England and city scenes New York City," but I also like this autumnal still life.
There is a short biography here and another here. You can see more of his work here.
