19th-Century Dutch School, Still Life With Fruit, Oysters & Lobster

19th-Century Dutch School, Still Life With Fruit, Oysters & Lobster

This impressive 19th-century still life depicts a sumptuous bounty of fruit, oysters, flowers and porcelain. It’s an abundant display - a celebration of nature.

This iconic style of still life was made popular by the Dutch old masters in the 17th-century when many of the goods depicted were considered highly exotic and precious. Middle-class buyers commissioned thousands of works to declare their newly acquired wealth and beautify their homes.

One such master, Abraham van Beyeren (c.1620-1690), painted in a similar manner so perhaps the artist was a follower.

The painting is housed within its original 19th-century frame.

Please note that this painting will need to be crated if shipped overseas. A cost for the crate will be added on during checkout.

Conservation & History

We care profoundly about our role as custodians and every piece in the collection has been assessed by our conservator. When required, we undertake professional restoration carefully using reversible techniques and adopt a light touch to retain the aged charm of each work. We also restore frames rather than replace them as many are original and selected by the artists themselves.
