Literature

In the Presence of Things: Four Centuries of European Still-Life Painting, exhibition catalogue, Lisbon 2010, vol. I, p. 91, reproduced plate 62.  

Catalogue Note

Only a few works are currently ascribed to the rare Andalusian artist, Francisco Barranco, who was a contemporary of Juan de Zurbarán and active in Seville in the 1640s and 1650s.  This painting shares a similar composition and subject matter with another work by Barranco, Still Life with Dead Birds and Chocolate Service, which is signed and dated 1647.1  

We are grateful to Dr. Peter Cherry for confirming the attribution on the basis of photographs.
