Fruits



Two-Tiered Still Life by Severin Roesen, The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art

The still-life study of the colorful fruit in this painting is framed by a spectacular landscape scene. One of the most difficult aspects of a still-life to get right is making the objects at the front look like they are laying realistically on the table - Roesen does it well in this 19th century painting.

I was just visiting the Nelson-Atkins Museum about a month ago and saw this painting in "real time". You have a very good likeness.
