SON, Joris van
(b. 1623, Antwerpen, d. 1667, Antwerpen)


Oil on canvas, 139 x 194 cm
Private collection

The painting shows a still-life of a garland of fruits, flowers in a blue and white vase upon a stone plinth, together with vegetables, a wine cooler, a monkey, a tortoise, a macaw and a grey parrot, within an architectural setting.

Formerly the painting was attributed to Adriaen van Utrecht, and later to Abraham Mignon. It is Joris van Son's largest recorded work. The macaw and the monkey are from another hand.
