Michelangelo Caravaggio- Still Life with Fruit

  This is an oil on canvas painting. There is no exact date for its creation, but many have dated it between 1601 and 1605. I chose this painting because the fruit and squash remind me of the Fall season. I really like the way light is captured in the image. It's like there is one beam of light coming down that reaches all the produce. I think there is a greater meaning to why some of the squash and fruit is cut open other than giving the painting more body and visual appeal. The painting has definitely more of a 3D than a 2D appearance to me, again because of the way each object is perfectly illuminated and shadowed.
