A Sprig of Gooseberries on a Stone Plinth, Adriaen Coorte, 1699

olieverf op papier op paneel, 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.

On display in room 2.24 Adriaen Coorte
