Description

An ornamental stone bas-relief culminating with a child's head emerges from the dark background of the canvas. The central medallion is empty, but in other compositions by the same artist it welcomes a sacred or mythological scene. A rich garland of flowers and fruit embellishes the sculpture: in the lower part the roses are intertwined with peonies, bluebells, carnations and wildflowers with the solitary presence of a cornflower; in the upper part there is a lush variety of grape clusters, corn cobs, apricots, plums, figs, a pumpkin, a branch of cherries and, above, two red chillies that stand out for their chromatic intensity. Colorful butterflies animate the scene, alighting here and there. Flowers and fruits are painted with extraordinary adherence to life, but the whole composition appears to be strongly studied and not naturalistic, perhaps linked to symbolic meanings. The painting, previously attributed to Verbruggen the Younger, is currently assigned, based on the characteristics of the signature, to his father, an artist specialized in the execution of opulent floral still lifes that enjoyed great success in the second half of the seventeenth century. The work entered the collections of the art gallery in 1871 following a purchase from the architect Ferdinando Reycend (Turin 1810 - 1879). Signed lower center «CASPER. P. VERBRVGGHEN. F. "
