Description

This still life is part of a series of three paintings exhibited in the spaces of the Pinacoteca dedicated to the collections of the Palazzo d'Adda in Varallo, residence of the homonymous Milanese family of bankers and merchants present in Valsesia since the mid-sixteenth century. The author, Margherita Caffi (1648-1710), is the daughter of Vincenzo Volò, known as "Vincenzino dei Fiori" for the extraordinary variety of his botanical compositions. Margherita, who bears the surname of her husband, the Cremonese painter Ludovico Caffi, creates the painting in the early days of her definitive move to Milan (around 1685), which sees her fully enter the family workshop. On February 2, 1697 she was admitted to the Milanese Academy of San Luca together with her sister Francesca and Lucrezia Ferrari, like her both painters, the first and only women to obtain this privilege.
