This painting is one of only seven dated works by Floris van Dijck, one of the most important of the early Dutch painters of still-life subjects.  Only about a dozen oil paintings by him are known, with the earliest dated examples from 1610.  This one, from 1628, is the last dated work by the artist, who nonetheless lived until 1651. While on the art market in the 1960s it was attributed to Clara Peeters; Ingvar Bergström was the first to correctly attribute it to van Dijck. 

Though van Dijck exerted an enormous influence over the next generation of still-life painters in Haarlem, remarkably little is known about his life.  Born in Delft circa 1575, he trained in Haarlem, where he registered as a member of the Guild of St. Luke in 1610 and was elected deacon in 1637.  Scion of a wealthy patrician family, van Dijck is reported traveling and painting in Italy and was in Rome circa 1600, where he met the Italian painter and draftsman Cavaliere d'Arpino.  

In the present picture, the artist has combined a number of his favorite table elements, including fruits, bread and a white damask tablecloth.  Yet here there exists a less elaborate table spread of fewer objects and on a much smaller and more intimate scale than the grand bravura displayed in his earlier, extravagant banquet spreads, such as that in the Frans Hals Museum.1  Both bowls of fruit appear in a similar format in a larger composition by the artist, currently in a private collection (sold Sotheby’s London, 6 December 1995, lot 58).  The white damask cloth set upon a table is a common element of the artist’s still lifes.  With its lowered viewpoint, concentration on a limited number of objects and its single-point perspective, this painting anticipates the works of the monochrome banketje in Haarlem over the succeeding decade.

We are grateful to Fred G. Meijer of the Rijksbureau voor Kunsthistorische Documentatie, The Hague, who on the basis of photographs has confirmed van Dijck's authorship.
