Lemons, pewter vase and lace

  • Contemporary still life.

    A pewter vase, with a lemon and its leaves on top of it and another at the base, sitting on a ledge over a white lace vintage doily. 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 unframed. A handcrafted Florentine frame can be made on request for an additional cost.
