Sunday Masterpiece: Kalf

Willem Kalf
Still Life with Lobster, Drinking Horn and Glasses.
Oil on canvas
34 x 40 inches

In my opinion Kalf was the best of the 17th century Dutch still life painters. I would go so far as to say he was the best 17th century Dutch painter, period, edging out some famous competition, but that is just my opinion. His output was rather small, and unfortunately there are not many high-quality images of his work online.
