Attributed to Jan van Kessel the Younger
ANTWERP 1654 - 1708 MADRID
STILL LIFE WITH FRUITS IN PORCELAIN BOWLS, A VASE OF FLOWERS, AND TWO SQUIRRELS EATING NUTS

Catalogue Note

This painting fits into a group of fruit still lifes of similar dimensions attributed to Jan van Kessel II by Klaus and Christina Ertz in their 2012 catalogue raisonné of the Van Kessel family. In particular, the pattern on the blue and white porcelain here is identical to that seen in other fruit still lifes by the artist, and the mischievous squirrels recur in at least one other composition. Dr. Fred Meijer, however, believes this painting and others in the group to be the work of an artist or studio known as the Pseudo-Jan van Kessel II.
