Catalogue Note

This still life of fruit and flowers has been dated by Alberto Cottino (see Literature) as a mature work by Recco, datable to the late 1670s or beginning of the 1680s.  A similar work by the artist, combining a vase of flowers with an array of sweetmeats, and a curtain pulled aside at upper left was sold at Sotheby' London on 8 July 2015, lot 30.
