>Willem Kalf,Still Life with the Drinking-Horn of the Saint Sebastian Archers' Guild, Lobster and Glasses, about 1653
The artist has chosen the objects shown for their magnificent colour and texture. The sparkle of the lobster and the buffalo horn , the gleam of the lemon, the subtle texture of the carpet, all demonstrate the play of light over different surfaces. A contemporary viewer would have recognised the objects as expensive luxury items that only the wealthy would have been able to afford.
