Antique Framed Oil Painting by Jacqmotte dated 1908 is a superlative example of the classic still life, rendered in a subtly lit format accentuated by shadow as pioneered by Caravaggio.  The lush fabric atop the table provides a nice setting for the melon, grapes and assorted fruits with a bottle of wicker-wrapped wine in the background.  Survives in its original gilded frame.  A native of Belgium, Georges Philippe Jacqmotte (1876-1949) enjoyed success during his lifetime selling paintings at numerous auctions worldwide.  One of his most recent works, "Dunes in Sunlight and Shadow", sold at Bonhams San Francisco in 2014 for $4,000.
