This important still life is painted by Jan Fijt.
Jan Fijt was a Flemish Baroque painter, draughtsman and etcher. One of the leading animaliers of the 17th century, he was known for his refined depictions of animals and his lush hunting pieces.
Born in Antwerp as the son of a wealthy merchant.
Fijt enjoyed his training with the leading Antwerp animal painter Frans Snyders from 1629 to 1631. He became a master of the Antwerp Guild of St Luke in 1630.
Our painting represents a Still life with a lobster, dead hare, a roomer and peaches on a table ledge.
And is signed upper right on the marble pillar.
In very good condition and housed in a 20th century black frame.
