We are grateful to Dr. Fred G. Meijer for confirming the authorship of our panel to Elias van der Broeck and for his assistance in cataloguing this piece. This fine Still Life is set relatively early in the career of Van der Broeck, who worked in the studio of Jan Davidsz's de Heem, and the present picture is significantly close to some of his master's late compositions. As such, the present picture is an early example of a Still Life by Van den Broeck, soon after he had left the studio of Jan Davidsz. de Heem, ca. 1669–70. The lavish composition and succulent fruit is reminiscent of both the handling of paint, colour and design of the late works by De Heem.
