Still Life with Melon and Peaches, Edouard Manet
A summer table for you on Manet’s birthday.
Manet is noted as a figurative painter, and his still life subjects, I think, often get less attention than they deserve.
Original is in the National Gallery of Art, D.C. There is a good sized image on Wikipedia.

Dutch website: check this out, Charley! What do U think?
We should always see the eye-candy paintings in reality to react on them. What’s your opinion?
Nice when possible.
I like Manet. Merci beaucoup.
After a short stay in Madrid on September 14, 1865, Manet wrote to Baudelaire (French poet) that VELÁZQUES “is the greatest painter there ever was”. [Lo calificó como el «pintor de pintores» y «el más grande pintor que jamás ha existido»]
Diego (= James) Velázquez is Spanish baroque painter Diego Rodríguez de Silva y Velázquez.
