Art: A Table of Deserts

I took a shot of this still life painting by Dutch painter, Heem in The Louve in Paris. Exquisitely detailed.

In my university days I did a stint at selling art cards to bookshops for a gentleman named Philip Jones. At the time I didn’t know anything about fine art but this little job gave me an appreciation and desire to explore more. Later when travelling in Europe I would visit galleries and discover the original masterpieces from which the cards were created. This by Heem called A Table of Deserts is one I found.
