This admirable setting, still possessing its original polychrome colour, was created in northern Italy in the 17th century. Its place of production is notably suggested by the presence of a slightly "guilloché" black border forming the tour of the view.
The work of poplar wood is both original and surprising. Indeed, the setting is very naturalistic. It confuses both four large leaves placed at the corners of the frame, four flowers on each side but above all a large number of elegantly worked fruits. Among them, it is possible to count figs, pears, lemons, green beans, pomegranates...
This use of plant elements to form a whole is reminiscent of Giuseppe Arcimboldo's use of them to create anthropomorphic compositions a century earlier.
