Contemporary still life.
A lemon with its peel spiralling outwards sits in space, with light shining from inside it. 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.
