Still Life with Fruit and Vine | Pietro Paolo Bonzi
Still Life with Fruit and Vine
Bonzi’s still lifes exemplify a Caravaggesque naturalistic intensity of representation. Working with effects of natural sunlight and shadow, he made his elaborate arrangements of autumn fruit emerge from the depths of the background. Displayed on several levels as on a market stall, the stunning details and textures of the fruit, some with signs of decay, make them seem real enough to touch.
