CRESCENZI, Giovanni Battista
(b. 1577, Roma, d. 1635, Madrid)

Still-Life with Fruit, Vegetables and Mushrooms

Oil on canvas, 122 x 163 cm
Galleria Estense, Modena

This high-quality "Caravaggesque" still-life was clearly inspired by still-lifes created in Rome in 1600-10 and drew on the compositional solutions adopted by Caravaggio in the Supper at Emmaus, now at the National Gallery in London. Its attribution is not certain but it was unquestionably produced by a Roman workshop.
