Still Life with Fruit
Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio (1571–1610)
Caravaggio is often described as the father of Roman still-life painting, yet only two independent still lifes have been identified among his work. Still Life with Fruit features his signature dramatic lighting: a shaft of light that falls on the fruits & gourds below (the artist is said to have cut holes in the ceiling of his studio, incurring the wrath of his landlord).
