Early 20th century Dutch painter Jan Bogaerts elevates his simple, commonplace still life subjects with a remarkable sensation of the tactile feeling of their surfaces.

You can just feel the bent edge of the plate under the cherries, the slippery surface of the fruit, the cold snd slightly uneven character of the chipped tiles, and the heft and smooth surface of the cracked stoneware vessel.
