    EXHIBITED
    Remagen, Arp Museum Bahnhof Rolandseck, Kunstkammer Rau: Köstlich! - Stilleben von Frans Snyders bis Giorgio Morandi, 10 February-14 October 2012, no. 12 (as Osias Beert the Younger).

    LITERATURE
    S. Blöcker, Kunstkammer Rau: Köstlich! Stillleben von Franz Snyders bis Giorgio Morandi, Bielefeld, 2012, no. 12, p. 95 (as Osias Beert the Younger).

    We are grateful to Fred Meijer of the RKD for confirming the attribution to van Es on the basis of a colour photograph and for suggesting that it is a relatively early work by the artist.

    A member of the Antwerp guild of Saint Luke by 1617, Jacob Foppens van Es made his name painting very precise still lifes made up of distinct elements brought together on a simple ground, as with the present painting. At moments, the influence of the slightly older Antwerp artist, Osias Beert (circa 1580-1623/4), is discernible in his work. Other comparable examples to the present work are the signed Still life of plums now in the Michaelis Collection, Cape Town, South Africa, and the Still life of grapes and peaches offered at Sotheby's, New York, 5 June 2002, lot 28.
