Description

In Grapes and Eggs, a traditionally composed bacchanale still life is humorously subverted with the addition of several dozen raw egg yokes. The egg yokes poke fun at the decadent splendor of the arrangement, creating something unexpected and surreal in an otherwise traditional scene. Tiepolo's Rocco masterpiece "Rinaldo Enchanted by Armida", which hangs in the background, further emphasizes the sense of opulence verging on collapse. The richly patterned table covering and velvet drapery, hallmarks of the golden age of Dutch still life painting, further heighten the visual language of wealth and give the whole scene an air of operatic drama. The image evokes a stage on which the dramatically lit Grapes and Eggs are the stars.
