A French Louis XVI period oil on canvas still life framed painting from the 18th century, depicting a jug and fruits. Created in France during the 18th century, this oil on canvas painting features a mouth-watering arrangement of grapes and possibly apricots displayed in wicker baskets and flanked with a terracotta jug, standing out nicely on a dark neutral background. The light, coming from the left and hitting the scene in a diagonal, creates a subtle atmosphere while bringing the grapes to life. Set inside a carved frame, the painting is signed lower left. With its elegant depiction and dark tones, this 18th century French Louis XVI still life painting will enliven any wall beautifully, perhaps hung above a console table, commode or buffet.
