Water

Oil on canvas, 65 x 53 cm
Musées Royaux des Beaux-Arts, Brussels

This version of Water of exquisite quality remains quite faithful in most details to the original in Vienna; the most noticeable difference is that the pearl necklace is missing, and the squid is missing from the chin area. It was created in the workshop of Arcimboldo.
