Still Life with Fruit, Oysters and a Porcelain Bowl, Abraham Mignon, 1660 - 1679

oil on panel, h 55cm × w 45cm. More details

Mignon learned the rudiments of his craft from the still-life painter Jan Davidsz de Heem. The profusion of bright colours and the highly precise rendering of this still life, down to the smallest detail, betray his teacher’s influence. Mignon mastered De Heem’s tricks primarily to achieve certain effects, such as the light shining through the grapes, the glass-like shimmer of the pomegranate seeds and the water drops reflecting light.
