It’t interesting to compare this painting with a similar subject by Snyders in the National Gallery of Art, DC: Still Life with Grapes and Game.

  1. The rich and sensuous surface of a Frans Snyders painting is one more reason for painters and connoisseurs to take note of this renown 17th-century Dutch painter. His layering of the opacities, translucencies, and transparencies gives one pause for reflection in how oil paint can be masterfully manipulated in the service of meaning and delight. Thank you Charley Parker for bringing attention to Frans Snyders’ splendid details.
