Dutch Shool, Vanitas Scene with Cherub Leaning on a Skull, Oil on Canvas

$2,972.7520% Off


The work distinguishes itself by its naturalistic rendering of detail and a dramatic sense of chiaroscuro that reveal a deep understanding of the Italian School, 18th century. The present work clearly owes its inspiration to Caravaggio's celebrated Amor dormiente (Florence, Palazzo Pitti),a sleeping Cherub where, as in the present work, the naked child is combined with a vanitas still life.
