She has used a skilled and purposeful use of brushstroke and texture to paint an array of fruits in a variety of colors. It is in the original frame intended by the artist to frame the piece. It is painted on canvas measuring 20" x 16". It is framed in a 29 3/4" x 25 9/16" gilded, hand carved wood frame, which compliments this piece well. It is signed in a bottom corner "T Pouget", in fact you can see that the artist most likely originally signed the piece further into the corner of the painting, then re-signed it once it had been framed. The back of the painting has the number 22, possibly a catalog number.Matilda “Tillie" or "Tati” Pouget was born Matilda Schronen on February 27, 1906 in Salt Lake City, Utah. At the age of 35, she married Maximilien Roger Paul Pouget in Mexico City. Her husband was co-owner of the “Bar Papillon”, a very successful 1940s club which attracted an eclectic clientele including many of Mexico’s famous artists of the time, including Roberto Montenegro, who was a personal friend of the couple. Pouget herself started painting at this time. Years later, she and her husband would own Le Normandie (1326 Powell Street) a restaurant in San Francisco and a famous eatery in the 1950s. Tillie continued painting (primarily still lifes and portraits) up until her death on May 15, 1982.
