Life Arrangementos 1

painting by marguerita
The arrangements of comestibles, crockery and cookware and the occasional piece of fine silver or porcelain imply a humble, folksy lifestyle that appealed to his upper-class clientele. There are no skulls or bugs delivering vanitas-type morals about the ephemerality of earthly existence, and there is no fancy brushwork asserting the painter’s virtuosity.
