Lemons, pewter vase and white cloth
Oil painting, on canvas applied on wooden panel, depicting a contemporary still life.
A pewter vase sits on a ledge on top of a vintage white lace cloth, with lemons and leaves on top and around. 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.
