The Detroit Art Institute offers a wealth of pictures, sculpture, and decorative arts. Today I was interested in some of the fine chinaware and silver tableware in the collection, and also in still life painting from the Dutch Golden Age. Artichoke paintings are by Frans Snyders and Hendrick Maertensz Sorgh. I was surprised at how many times artichokes were represented -- I also liked the asparagus dishes and the oyster painting, and many others.
Aren't they stunning Mae. I had no idea artichokes were so photogenic. I have a similar vessel like the asparagus one only mine is a cabbage bowl.
Thank you for sharing...
Those Dutch painters had such an interesting eye for vegetables!
These are beautiful!
