Banquet Still-Life with a Mouse (detail)

Oil on canvas
Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Los Angeles

In the midst of this sumptuous still-life showing a colourful collection of exclusive objects on a marble table top, most of which is covered by an Oriental rug, a mouse merrily climbs over the edge of a silver dish.
