Still Life of Grapes and Peaches

Panfilo Nuvolone Italian

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 617

The simplicity of this fastidiously executed still life is deceptive. It includes the artist’s reflection in the base of the stemmed dish and alludes to the passage of time through the spotting on the fruit and the bees pursuing the sweet smell of decay.
