Atmospheric, French still life signed, M.J. H Bonnefon and dated 1914.
Wonderful Vermeer-like effects of light and shadow, the use of chiaroscuro inspired perhaps by the Italian Baroque era. A terracotta jug half in shadow, a pretty porcelain dish with a lemon and a delicate wine glass. A pestle and mortar in the background.
This semi-realistic painting is delicately executed, the brush marks are calm and considered.
