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

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

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

The composition of this still life is both sumptuous and inventive. Mignon set the roemer, the green glass at the left, upside down. Reflected in it is a window, and a view of a church tower in Utrecht, where Mignon lived. The porcelain bowl from Asia was a sign of prosperity as well as being a showpiece on the table.
