Catalogue Note

Documented as signed and dated on the verso of its original canvas, our painting, formerly in the Mestrallet collection in 1974 is one of only two known works signed and dated from Paul Dorival's corpus. Artist listed in the Grenoble region, art history does not yet know much about his career. This work is thus an extremely important study and attests to the culture of the artist of still life works during the first half of the 17th century adopting typical compositions with a very low ledge. This characteristic reveals that the artist must have known works by artists outside of France like Isaac Soreau or even French like Louyse Moillon.
