CAMPI, Vincenzo
(b. ca. 1530, Cremona, d. 1591, Cremona)


Oil on canvas, 72 x 91 cm
Private collection

Careful technical study has shown that the canvas is not a fragment of a larger composition; it is intact on all four edges. Its visual connections with Campi's Fruit Seller and its extraordinary pictorial quality confirm it as the only independent still-life that can be attributed unreservedly to the artist.
