STREECK, Juriaen van
(b. 1632, Amsterdam, d. 1687, Amsterdam)


Oil on canvas, 49 x 41 cm
Private collection

The picture represents a still-life of a blue and white Wan-li bowl with peaches, a lemon and an orange, a porcelain ewer and vase, a wine glass and a knife, on a partly draped stone ledge.

The painter was strongly influenced by Willem Kalf, and certain elements of this composition are reminiscent of Kalf's later pronk still-lifes. However, the painting displays Streeck's artistic skill at depicting different objects.
