Dutch School Still Life With Vase, Apples, Oranges And Lemons

Dutch School Still Life With Vase, Apples, Oranges And Lemons

A fine Dutch still life depicting several apples, oranges and lemons atop an oriental-style cloth on a table.

It’s beautifully rendered with the artist paying particular attention to the light as it falls on each piece of fruit. Dutch painters have a great heritage for creating beautiful still lifes and this artist has clearly been inspired by their forebears.

An inscription on the reverse refers to ‘M De Haas’.

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.
