Kitchen Still-Life

Oil on panel, 70 x 102 cm
Institute of Arts, Minneapolis

This is a characteristic kitchen still-life by the artist, a genre in which he specialized. The painting is chiefly an exercise in depicting metallic surfaces and effects of reflected light and was probably intended to hang in the kitchen of a substantial household.
