Still Life with Silver Jug, Willem Kalf
In the Rijksmuseum. Image also available on Google Art Project and Wikimedia Commons.
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.
