Fruit and Flowers

Orsola Maddalena Caccia Italian

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 617

With its mountain of fruit and dance of flowers in the background, this is one of Caccia’s most ambitious still-life compositions. Her idiosyncratic way of individuating each stem of the tulips and irises offers a notable contrast to the flower paintings by her Northern European contemporaries also on view in this gallery.
