KRAEN, Adriaen Jansz.
(b. ca. 1619, Haarlem, d. 1679, Haarlem)

Still-Life with an Overturned Silver Tazza

Oil on oak panel, 59 x 84 cm
Private collection

Previously the painting was attributed to Kraen's older townsman Pieter Claesz., on whose style Kraen based his own. The crossed tazza and silvergilt cup that Kraen has included in this still-life is a characteristic motif of the artist, as is the representation of the silver apostle spoon leaning across the broken pie crust.
