HAMEN, Juan van der
(b. 1596, Madrid, d. 1631, Madrid)

Still-Life of Glass, Pottery, and Sweets

Oil on canvas, 52 x 88 cm
Museo del Prado, Madrid

Juan van der Hamen, together with Felipe Ramírez and Juan Sánchez Cotán, made his contribution to the definition of the austere, spiritual character of the still-life genre in Spain, in contrast to the far more pompous, rhetorical character of its Flemish and Italian counterparts.
