Master of the Metropolitan Still Life
ACTIVE IN ROME IN THE SECOND HALF OF THE 17TH CENTURY
STILL LIFE WITH POMEGRANATES, PEACHES, GRAPES, FIGS AND SQUASHES

Catalogue Note

The attribution is due to Dottor Gianluca Bocchi. A homogeneous body of paintings was first grouped together by Raffaello Causa in 1972 around the artist's eponymous work depicting a Still life with grapes and pomegranates in the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.1 The as-yet anonymous artist was active in Rome in the close circle of Michelangelo Pace del Campidoglio; it has even been proposed that the works grouped under the Metropolitan Master's name are in fact works by Pace at a different stage of his career.
