Still Life with Fruit

Ca. 1640. Oil on canvas.
Room 006

The depiction of fruit was one of the specialities of this versatile Roman artist, who also painted battle scenes -his most appreciated works in his own lifetime- genre scenes and leafy orchard gardens with life-size youths. Together with works by the enigmatic Master S.B. and by Mario Nuzzi, this canvas was commissioned to decorate the no longer extant Buen Retiro palace in Madrid.
