News from Randal Marlin:
I just got word from Bill Lyons, former Chair of the Trinity College Dublin Philosophy Department, that "Pears on Pewter Platter" by Mom [Hilda van Stockum] just sold for €2,200. It had been advertised for auction with an estimated value of between €1,000 €2,000.

The dealer was John De Veres White of 35 Kildare Street in Dublin, Ireland. (Phone:+353 1 676 8300.)
Randal comments: Mom's still lifes reflect a vision of nature largely lost by modernity, but so well described by Romano Guardini whose work is frequently referred to by Pope Francis in Laudato Si.
