He who knows how to appreciate colour relationships, the influence of one colour on another, their contrasts and dissonances, is promised an infinitely diverse imagery.

Still Life with Cheeses, Floris van Dijck (82x111cm, 1615-1620). Just the tablecloth is amazing.

    I bet the Italian silk damask tablecloth with the oriental rug underneath was the hardest to paint. It took Van Dijck five years to finish the painting. The result is therefore stunning, just as Charley already has indicated.

    The upper wheel of cheese looks like it has passed the “use by” date though. Five years working on a painting will do that.
