This charming antique painting blends the classic still life with the Renaissance impression of cherubs for a stunning Old World effect. What makes this work even more amazing is the superlative hand-carved French walnut frame with laurel sprays, ribbon and spiral ribbon motifs surrounding the canvas. The Rubenesque cherubs have been executed with aplomb, as have the lifelike quality of the fresh grapes and peaches. The entire composition is set upon a classical stone architectural element that adds an even more remarkable effect.
