Kalf just loved to trace the path of light across arrangements of complex objects, particularly those with intricate reflective surfaces.

I love the reflected color of the lemon in the sculptural metal patterns of the silver jug. (Don’t miss the face in the upper right of the the jug.)

A still life that invites you in like a landscape.
