Masters Neoseries

Willem van Aelst executed still lifes with flowers, dead game, weapons, foodstuffs and table items. His compositions changed little over the course of his career and are characterised by plain, dark backgrounds against which the various elements are outlined, and the use of veined marble tabletops or rich textiles, particularly velvet. Van Aelst also tended to locate the vases and other principal elements at the extreme front edge of the tabletops.

Van Aelst here includes two materials, glass and metal, which he was particularly skilled in depicting, revealing his technical merits and pleasure in interpreting the striking effects of light on these surfaces. The inclusion of birds was one of Van Aelst’s innovations in his still lifes. The present canvas is a good example of the Dutch interest in the cultivation of citrus fruit, which was not particularly suited to the climate of the Low Countries.

More information


The Thyssen-Bornemisza National Museum is a Madrid art gallery exhibiting the works of old and modern masters. It owes its existence to the lease agreement (1988) and the subsequent acquisition by the Spanish Government (1993), of the most valuable core of the private collection built over seven decades by the Thyssen-Bornemisza family.
