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.
