Still Life with Quinces
Titled 'Membrilios' ('Quinces') by the artist, this alluring still life is reminiscent of those of Caravaggio in its theatrical depiction of light and shadow. The texture of the drapery in this piece is a display of Lahorra's outstanding realist skill, serving to make the vibrant yellow of the quinces all the more striking.
