For this exercise I chose to annotate an image by Willem Kalf. I’m really pleased that I chose to do this for two reasons
- I had not heard of Kalf before so it was good to learn more about his work. I looked a several of his paintings before I chose this one to annotate.
- Not only had I not come across the paintings of Kalf before, but I had certainly not heard of ‘Pronkstilleven’
One of the aspects of this course that I like so much is how I am learning new things all the time. I’m probably not a huge fan of ‘ostentatious still life’ but it is great to learn about it and increase my general knowledge.
