paper, h 28.7cm × w 21.2cm More details

Coorte portrayed fruit with the precision of a scientist. By isolating it, it is as if he wanted to get to the very essence of a peach or a gooseberry. Although these four paintings were not conceived as a series, they have formed an ensemble since the second half of the 18th century.
