|Still life with pomegranate and quince - Towerwater|
I found that the quince and the pomegranate were painted by a couple of the old masters around the Mediterranean area. I can safely rely on the artist painting from life and creating the still-life subject in close proximity to where the plants, fruit or vegetables had grown.
