TITLE: Fruit and Flowers
ARTIST: Paulus Theodorus van Brussel (1754 - 1795)
SIZE: 10" x 14"
MADE BY: Wentworth
DESCRIPTION: The arrangement includes grapes, peaches, plums, melons and a
pineapple, as well as a number of insects. The pineapple in the top
right of the painting balances the
diagonal thrust of the composition, although
as an individual object it seems to
have no effective means of support. Characteristic of 18th-century flower still
lifes, the fruit and flowers are arranged on a ledge in front of a light-colored
background. Trees are faintly
visible which suggests that a garden setting is intended.
