Catalogue Note

Pieter van Boucle was a Flemish Baroque artist and pupil of Frans Snyders who worked mostly in Paris in the studios of both Laubin Baugin and Simon Vouet. In Paris, he became one of the most prolific Flemish still life painters, exemplifying the Flemish influence in Parisian paintings.

This interior scene depicts the majority of the elements you would find in Boucle's paintings such as the cat, fishes, and overflowing baskets of fruits. The representation of a vicious dog in this painting that stares firmly at the cat with his teeth peeking through the sides of his snout is parallel to that of the dog in the composition in the Musée du Louvre, Paris (inv. no. 1852). Furthermore, the stacked copper dishes, depicted with such luminosity and depth in far corners, also hold a similarity between these two works. However, the inclusion of the window that opens up the composition to an elaborate landscape, and the different levels where a variety of objects rest make it among the more ambitious works the artist did.

We are grateful to Dr. Fred Meijer for endorsing the attribution on the basis of photographs.
