Clementines and blue glass
Oil painting, on canvas applied on wooden panel, depicting a contemporary still life.
A blue decorated glass sits with a blue cloth inside it and a clementine on top, with its stem and leaves. Another clementine sits on the side, halved. The chiaroscuro technique enhances the strong contrast between the subject and the very dark background and gives an illusion of three-dimensional quality and a sense of mystery.
The painting is framed. The frame is a handcrafted Florentine product.
