This is the second of my art recreation series.
'In this small still life, Chardin portrayed a modest subject--three walnuts, four peaches, two bunches of grapes, and a pewter mug--but gave the objects monumentality by arranging them in pure geometric groupings and concentrating on their basic forms. He suggested the object's various textures and substances through the play of light across surfaces and successive applications of paint. In this way, Chardin conveyed the fuzzy skin of the peaches, the hard, brittle shell of the walnuts, the translucence of the grapes, and the heavy, cold exterior of the pewter mug.' (quote from Getty Centre website)
Note the shapes - circles (peaches and grapes), ovals (walnuts), rectangles (the ledge), and a triangle (the stacked peaches). Although the shapes are flat ( two dimensional) they can create the illusion of three dimensions. As I don't have a pewter mug of this shape I made do with a glass covered in foil.
