Oil on canvas on wooden panel
Size: 40x28 cm
Peeled lemon on marble
Oil painting, on canvas applied on wooden panel, depicting a contemporary still life.
A lemon with its peel spiralling horizontally sits on a ledge on top of a slab of white marble. 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.
Upon request the painting can be framed for an additional cost.
