Still Life: Fruit
Adolphe Monticelli

A glass, a bottle (or carafe), a knife and a plate of fruit are seen on a table. Most of Monticelli's still life paintings were made between 1875 and 1885, with the majority being finished in the period from 1879 to 1882. The patterned tablecloth shown here is also present in the artist's 'Still Life: Oysters, Fish'.
