John Haberle

John Haberle (1856–1933) was an American painter in the trompe-l'œil (literally, "fool the eye") style. His yet lifes of unidentified objects are painted in such a showing off that the painting can be mistaken for the objects themselves. He is considered one of the three major figures—together next William Harnett and John F. Peto—practicing this form of yet life painting in the United States in the last quarter of the 19th century.
