Luis Meléndez, Still Life with Chocolate Service, 1770
My Spanish painting class with the amazing Dan Hofstadter continues to amuse and interest me. Today we looked at Meléndez and his amazing still lifes, really advanced and detailed for the time. Many consider him the master of the Spanish still life genre.
This is what Dan has to say about the awesome one shown above:
“This is like your most adorable breakfast. Don’t you just want to be there?”
