Catalogue Note

This impressive garden still life is typical of the large canvases produced by De Coninck during his career in Rome. These still lifes often incorporate a number of the same motifs such as the large urn or other architectural elements, placed in formal, italianate garden settings evocative of, and presumably inspired by, those of his wealthy Roman clientele. The rabbits and the array of exotic autumnal fruits also recur throughout these works: see for example, the still lifes sold London, Sotheby's, 12 December 1990, lot 70 and New York, Sotheby's, 16 May 1996, lot 243.

We are grateful to Fred G. Meijer for confirming the attribution on the basis of a photograph.
