Annotation: a still life image

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.

A copy of the annotation is attached, as usual the photos have been removed for copyright purposes.
