Octagonal Still Life with Bunches of Grapes

Octagonal Still Life with Bunches of Grapes
Oil on canvas. 1646
Espinosa, Juan de

The octagonal format of this painting makes it unique among still lifes in seventeenth-century Spain (and, indeed, the rest of Europe), in which rectangular supports predominated. This peculiarity has important consequences in terms of the compositional organisation of the piece and accentuates the work´s status as a witty game and an occasion to display the artist´s technical abilities. The objec

In addition to the Roemer goblet, other glasses common in this kind of monochrome still life presented here include the Berkemeyer, in this case tipped over and broken, and the delicate Façon-de-Venise wineglass, in fashion at the time and likewise made in the Netherlands. Also featured is an exquisitely decorated silver goblet. Alongside them is a knife with a sheath and an open clock that

This still life forms part of the group of paintings Vroom dubbed monochrome banketjes or monochrome still lifes which were started in 1629 by Willem Claesz. Heda, but which Pieter Claesz. cultivated with equal mastery, to the point that these two painters are considered its leading exponents. The work is dated 1637 and signed with Claesz´s typical monogram and the enigmatic word TÉNESIUS I

The flat gray stone surface with a hollow in the left foreground bears various sorts of produce, mostly fruit and nuts. This, in turn, draws attention to a deep dish filled with walnuts in the middle ground behind a quince, several chestnuts and four apples. Further back, various short lengths of sugarcane fade into the shadows. The elements are laid out in a traditional manner to insure the neces

The painting belongs to the type of still life designated by Vroom as monochrome banketjes, pieces first executed by Heda towards the end of the 1620s that became very popular in the Netherlands and abroad, as illustrated by the fact that there were two in the inventory of Rubens´s property. There are sufficient grounds to interpret these compositions as moralising, religious or allegorical works.

As in the case of those two paintings (P02755 y P02756), Still Life with Beer-pitcher and Orange belongs to the typology defined by Vroom (1980) as monochrome banketje. Traditionally, this picture has been attributed to Willem Claesz. Heda. However, there are a number of stylistic aspects that distance it from the still lifes painted by this artist in the 1630s. Firstly, the monotone colouring bas
