(active 1650-1675 in Valencia)

Still-Life with a Bowl of Grapes

c. 1660
Oil on canvas, 59 x 94 cm
Private collection

This painting and its pair, Still-Life with a Bowl of Peas, are undoubtedly Spanish, though they also show an influence by the early 17th century Roman painters. The elements of the still-lifes have a clear traditional meaning with overt, sexual symbolism.
