Still Life with Fruit on a Stone Ledge from the Roman School, once attributed to Caravaggio
Still Life with Fruit on a Stone Ledge from the Roman School, once attributed to Caravaggio (details)

Still Life with Fruit on a Stone Ledge, Roman School,

I have seen this beautiful still life at times attributed to Caravaggio (Michelangelo Marisi), or to a follower of his.

Sotheby’s made no such direct claim when the painting passed through their auction house in 2013, referring to it instead as attributed to an unnamed artist of the Roman School, but the extensive notes on their page devoted to the item mention Carvaggio more than a dozen times.

It does seem similar in nature to a still life painting of a basket of fruit acknowledged to be by Caravaggio, but there are also other paintings from the time and place that also appear to be in a similar style that are attributed to “a follower of Caravaggio“.

Regardless of the painting’s attribution, it is clearly an extraordinary still life, with an tactile presence that must be palpable in person.

There is a Wikipedia page devoted to the painting, though it inexplicably contains a poorly reproduced image.

At the Gate (Am Thor), Max Klinger; etching and engraving
At the Gate (Am Thor), Max Klinger; etching and engraving (details)

At the Gate (Am Thor), Max Klinger; etching and engraving; roughy 18 x 12″ (45 x 31 cm). Link is to the impression the collection of the National Gallery, DC, whih has both a downloadable and zoomable version of the image (and no longer requires an account to download high-res images). There is also a zoomable version on the Google Art Project.

Max Klinger was a German Symbolist artist active in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Though he was also a painter, Klinger was known primarily for his graphics in the form of etchings, drypoint, aquatint and engraving — sometimes combining multiple techniques in a single plate, as he did here.

This print is from a series titled A Love, Opus X, which he dedicated to Arnold Böcklin, a Swiss Symbolist by whom he was greatly influenced — to the point of doing a beautiful etching version of Böcklin’s famous painting Isle of the Dead.

Oscar Droege, color woodblock prints
Oscar Droege, color woodblock prints

Color woodblock prints don’t get as much attention in Europe and the U.S. as they do in Japan, but there are adherents of the art who produce beautiful work.

Oscar Droege was a German printmaker and painter active in the early to mid 20th century. His prints are largely of landscapes, but also include ships, houses and other subjects.

His use of color is subtle, atmospheric and invites a contemplative appreciation of his work.

In contrast to many of the color woodblock print artists of 19th and 20th century Japan, a number of European and American artists working in the medium, including Droege, largely eschew the use of outline in favor of defining subjects directly as shapes of color.

An Idle Moment, Daniel Ridgway Knight, oil on canvas
An Idle Moment, Daniel Ridgway Knight, oil on canvas

An Idle Moment, Daniel Ridgway Knight, oil on canvas, roughly 37 x 47 inches (95 x 120 cm); link is to page for high res file on Wikimedia Commons; original is in the High Museum of Art.

American artist Daniel Ridgway Knight, who was active in the late 19th end early 20th centuries, spent much of his career in France, where he was noted for his portrayals of peasant women in idyllic pastoral scenes, often near or overlooking a river (presumably the Seine Valley).

Here, we see him depart slightly from his usual depiction of one or two women, with the addition of a third, male, figure, engaging the young women in conversation as they take a break from their chores.

I love the softly atmospheric look of many of Knights paintings, which make great use of soft edges, and the compressed values and muted colors with which he indicates distance.
