Catalogue Note

Though born in Antwerp, this bountiful still life by Hieronymus Galle illustrates an absorption of the mid-seventeenth century Roman still life tradition, no doubt introduced into Galle's own work following his sojourn to the Eternal City in 1661. Indeed, it was from that date onwards that he signed his works with the Italianized form of his name, Girolimo. By 1661 a precedent had been set with a number of northern still life artists having traveled to Rome, notably Abraham Brueghel, with whom this work can be easily compared.
