Red onions, garlic heads and glass vase
Contemporary still life.
A decorated glass vase with red onions, partially peeled, and garlic heads sit on a reflective surface. 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.
