Baroque Artist-Josefa de Óbidos, c.1679

Still-Life, by Josefa de Obidos

The contrast of black, white and blood-red is not only noticeable, but breathtaking. It makes me want to pick out one of the pastries and eat it! Also, there is evidence of shallow space, as in the Carvaggio paintings we saw.
