Still Life with Fruit and Game About 1660

On Display Scottish National Gallery

In this 'pronkstilleven' (Dutch for ‘sumptuous still lifes’) van Beyeren depicted a large variety of luxury objects, such as the Wan-li kraak (Chinese export porcelain) bowl, the Venetian glasses, brass mortar, and the pheasant and two hares. They are expressions of wealth as well as a demonstration of the artist’s painterly virtuosity.
