Lemons and copper vase

  • Contemporary still life.

    A copper vase sits on a ledge, with two lemons and their leaves and a white lace cloth. 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.
