    A pewter plate overflowing with red and yellowish cherries. The image is painted in several almost translucent layers on a wooden panel, thus creating the impression that the berries are shiny and juicy. Osias Beert was a still-life painter from Antwerp who often painted compositions with fruits and berries.
