Beautiful painting oil on canvas depicting a still life particularly rich, where stand a vase overflowing with flowers and two pomegranates, one of which is open, always result from the highly symbolic and evocative character.
The kind of 'still life' begins to establish itself in the Netherlands where, during the seventeenth century, became fully part of the favorite subjects of the Flemish master painting. Given the great success and appreciation by the public of collectors and aristocrats of the time in the following centuries this theme continued to develop throughout Europe, by seeing revisited and often enriched the objects represented.
The painting in question, minutely detailed in presenting the flowers, is part of the consolidated school, Florence area, which inspired by Flemish and Dutch masters of the seventeenth century, were able to reproduce their compositions with great technique.
The varied color range gives vivacity and elegance to the work, made by a Florentine artist of the nineteenth century, expert of the seventeenth-century Flemish productions. Thanks to the spread of light within the picture, the color scheme is decided, but at the same time delicate, with a dark background that brings out the shine.
The painting, although it was performed at the end of the nineteenth century is in beautiful patina with an extraordinary range of colors and pictorial definition, accompanied by its gilded frame.
