Still Life with Flowers, Vegetables and Pigeons

Start collecting

Little is known of Tintore's life, and few works are attributed to him. His still lifes are more decorative than naturalistic, with the abundance of fruits and vegetables loosely arranged; here, they are held together by a broad serpentine curve that moves the eye from upper right to lower left.
