Still life with a Bouquet of Fruits, after Caravaggio, 2006
Chromogenic print mounted on aluminum
183 × 231 cm
Rendered with great realism and attention to detail, the work ‘Basket of Fruit’ by Caravaggio is considered to be a sort of prototype of the “still life” genre. Such detailing is almost conflicts with the abstract neutral background of the painting and with the line of colour the basket itself is resting on.
