Faisselle sounds so good. And the pot is beautiful though I'm sure the maker did not have beauty as his main or even secondary intent. The painting, of course, is wonderful.
I find that the specific layout of this painting(like in so many others),in which the objects nearly take all the place,shares a like Georgia O'Keeffe and Melendez among others www.okeeffemuseum.org/natural-and-still-life-forms.html www.nga.gov/exhibitions/2009/melendez/index.shtm But what is unique in this painting is at first,the upper outline of the pear that seems to be an extension of the fortress outline(as a desirable neckline),then,the arrow slit of that imaginary fortress on the pot,as a doorway to dreams of mouth watering desserts...
(Sorry) "...shares a common filiation with the layouts of Georgia O'Keeffe..."
I really love your still lifes, like this one. It is lovely...
