Artists from Delaware - Chalfant

Time to look for artists from Delaware.  Here is a fine artist I bet you never heard of (too many good artists nobody ever heard of)

Jefferson David Chalfant 1856-1931, born in Pennsylvania but moved to Delaware as a young man and lived there his whole life.  He was self taught although he did manage to spend 2 years in Paris where he studied art.  He is probably best known for his still lifes although I could not find too many on line.  Chalfont painted himself into the first picture.  He is on the lower right.
