Oil on canvas on wooden panel

Size: 40x30 cm


Size with frame:  55x45 cm

Orange and white cloth

  • Oil painting, on canvas applied on wooden panel, depicting a contemporary still life.

    An orange with a quarter cut out, a leaf, and the partially peeled quarter sits on a ledge on a vintage 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.
