Still Life with Game and a Greek Stele: Allegory of Autumn, Georgius Jacobus Johannes van Os, 1818

oil on canvas, h 146cm × w 116cm. More details

Dead animals, a gun and a powder horn: everything in this still life relates to hunting. The Greek marble stele (memorial tablet) in the background presents a huntress (the goddess Diana?), and the bronze relief in the foreground depicts putti hunting. The pendant of this painting (next to it) also includes a relief, that one showing Venus, the goddess of love, making her toilet.
