A contemporary of Pieter Faes and Frans van Dael, Michel-Joseph Speeckaert takes place in the neoclassical period of still life in Belgium.
Flowers, fruits, birds, game, wicker basket are his favorite subjects that we almost always find throughout his work.
On a marble entablature, two birds surrounding the head of a hare hanging by a paw rub shoulders with a wicker basket filled with fruit and in the foreground is a powder pear.
In the background, a large Medici vase and a dark-colored tree trunk highlight the gap on nature.
