Still Life with Silver Ewer, Willem Kalf, 1655 - 1660

oil on canvas, h 73.8cm × w 65.2cm. More details

Set in a dark niche are several valuable objects, including an elegantly embossed silver ewer, a glass in a gilt holder, and a Chinese porcelain bowl containing citrus fruit. The light shimmers on the silver and gold objects with all the colours of the rainbow, picking out the grotesque figures on the surface of the metal. Kalf’s mastery of illumination lends the objects a truly precious appearance.
