DIJCK, Floris Claesz van
(b. 1575, Haarlem, d. 1651, Haarlem)
Oil on oak panel, 28 x 46 cm
This painting depicts a still-life with melons, plums, cherries, and bread on a table draped with a white damask tablecloth. In the panel the artist has combined a number of his favourite table elements. With its lowered viewpoint, concentration on a limited number of objects and its single-point perspective, this painting anticipates the works of the monochrome banketje in Haarlem over the next decade.
