Still Life with Cheese, Floris Claesz. van Dijck, c. 1615

oil on panel, h 82.2cm × w 111.2cm. More details

Fruit, bread, and cheese – grouped by type – are set on a table covered with costly damask tablecloths. The illusion of reality is astounding; the pewter plate extending over the edge of the table seems close enough to touch. The Haarlem painter Floris van Dijck ranked among the pioneers of Dutch still-life painting.
