Italian Still Life With Apples, Berries & Pears

BRAVE FINE ART
A fine early 19th-century still life depicting an overflowing basket of apples, berries and pears. The artist has painted these beautifully and they appear as if freshly picked from a garden (perhaps they were).

Some of the apples have indentations from insect bites, which have been left in to keep the image feeling realistic and wholly natural. The addition of the green leaves adds another layer to this attractive basket of Italian fruit.

The painting is housed within an antique gilt composition frame.
