Still-Life with a Basket of Fruit

c. 1630
Oil on oak panel, 39 x 62 cm
Private collection

This is a still-life with a basket of plums, peaches, cherries and redcurrants, together with fraises-de-bois in a porcelain bowl, figs and mulberries on a wooden ledge. Characteristic of Moillon's still-lifes at around 1630 are the cherry leaves which extend far beyond the confines of the basket.
