painting, h 49.5cm × w 44cm More details

Originally, horses were Oberman’s speciality. However, there was little demand for the genre in the Netherlands, so around 1825-1830 he switched to painting still lifes of flowers and fruit. This fruit arrangement includes both native and glasshouse-cultivated varieties which were available around 1830 in the Netherlands, although in different seasons. This harvest includes plums, quinces, peaches and currants.
