Willem Grasdorp is a rare Late Baroque Dutch still life painter. Besides for his excellent paintings he has remained famous for Arnold Houbraken’s description of the way in which he was bullied at the age of 19 by his Master, the German still-life painter Ernst Stuven.

Our painting testifies of the interest around 1700 for Italianate park landscapes and exotic fruits. Strange-looking, fascinating and rare animals that lived and still live in Holland enhance the alien atmosphere: a green sand lizard and a European rhinoceros beetle. A garden statue representing Hercules slaying the Lernean Hydra complements the Classical, Italianate perception.
