Description

Signed and dated in the lower left corner by the artist (“Jos Van Genegen, 1920”), this nature morte, or still life painting, depicts a gibier de chasse (“hunting game”) buffet spread out on a table lined with a linen. The canvas is surrounded by a gold painted frame carved with foliate cartouches, repeating scrolls, and geometric panels with a lozenge patterned backrground.

Joseph Van Genegen was born in 1857 in Belgium. Although not much is known about his life, a study of his works shows that he often painted pastoral landscapes or still life pieces. This rendering features a dead rabbit strung by its hind leg above the table. Beside the rabbit is an abundance of fruit, including a pineapple, grapes, and other whole produce. A melon sliver is to the right of the rabbit’s head and a halved peach is in front of the animal. In the background, there is a wicker basket overflowing with grapes. Various vessels can be seen behind the bounty of fruit, including a small, lidded copper chaudron and a large ewer with a handle. This still life painting by Jos Van Genegen would make a great addition to a gentleman’s office or a bar and games room.

CONDITION: Good antique condition with light rubs and losses to the frame. Old repairs to the canvas are visible. Minor buildup to both canvas and frame.
