Oil on panel, 43 x 56 cm
Private collection

This still-life is composed of fruit with grapes, raisins, and nuts. It is signed and dated lower left: "R. Koets/Ao. 1645." Roelof Koets left behind a small oeuvre, which comprises only some twenty pictures. Signed works by him are rare. Occasionally, Koets painted grapes and fruit in the banquet still-lifes of his colleague, Pieter Claesz.
