Johann Amandus Wink (or Winck) worked in Munich apparently exclusively as a painter of small-scale still lifes of fruit, of which the present lot is a fine example. The artist uses color gradations to indicate the texture and ripeness of each fruit: here the juicy strawberries and grapes contrast with the overripe and bruised pear.
