Happy Birthday to Alfred Maurer, who was born on this day in 1868. Maurer was an American modernist painter and a good friend of Dr. Albert Barnes. In “Still Life,” the use of bold colors and juxtaposition of decorative patterns remind us of a work by Henri Matisse, whom Maurer greatly admired. 🎨 Alfred Maurer. “Still Life,” c. 1909–1910.
