Catalogue Note

Though his precise dates are unknown, Andries Benedetti was a pupil of Vincent Cernevael in 1636 and later moved to the studio of Jan Davidz. de Heem.  Much influenced by his master, Benedetti's  work imitates the innovations of de Heem, creating sumptuous compositions with skimming light and combining the rich, colourful, typically Netherlandish palette with the more muted tones popular in Northern painting.

Fred Meijer dates this painting between 1640, when the still life painter had been accepted as a master of the Antwerp Guild, and 1649, when he is last recorded.
