This hitherto unrecorded composition incorporates various items which appear in other, usually less elaborate, still life groupings. Studies of casts from his studio were amongst the very earliest subjects by Bayard in his early experiments with his direct positive process in early 1839 and 1840. He went on in the early 40s and 50s to make a number of further still life studies, and photographs in his studio which included objects which had featured in the still-life. [Pierre Apraxine]
