Still Life with Grapes and Peaches, Emelie Preyer, oil on canvas, roughly 7 x 9″ (17 x 23 cm)

A wonderfully tactile still life from German painter Emelie Preyer, who was active in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

I love the she has emphasized imperfections, with the inclusion of the fly (or perhaps a tiny wasp?), the insect ravaged leaf, and the traces of what I take to be insects going after the smaller fruits in the foreground.
