Summary description

Oil painting on canvas, Still Life of Fruit in a Garden by Michele Pace del Campidoglio (Rome c.1610 - Rome c.1670). A profusion of fruit placed on the ground at the base of a large classical urn on a plinth, in a garden, to the left of which can be seen other classical motifs and a garden pavilion. An urn, with buddleia, in the centre, and melon, figs, peaches, grapes, piled beneath, avilla and terrcae, left.

Pendant to the painting NT 773344.2. Both are in early 18th-century gadrooned giltwood frames. Such pictures were originally painted - mostly by Northern immigrants - for the galleries of grand Roman palazzi; but they were subsequently acquired by those making the Grand Tour, or bought at auction in London, for galleries such as this one at Osterley, that were partly inspried by Roman models.
