Detail Description

Pieter Claesz is among the most important still life painters in Holland during the seventeenth century. This panel from 1644 comes from the decade of the peak of his productivity. Painting light and its ever-changing reflections, Claesz brilliantly captures its impermanence to create a timeless feast.
