(24" x 36", oil on canvas)
Fruytagie is a Dutch term meaning fruit piece and was used in the seventeenth century to describe what we now classify as the genre of Still Life. As this painting has most definite roots in the classical tradition, I thought it appropriate to resurrect an old term. I have drawn upon my recent small pieces to arrive at this more ambitious composition, but I am looking forward to returning to a few more 12" compositions.
