Forster was excellent at depicting fruit complete with all of its varied complexities of form, surface and texture. In our painting, Still Life of Fruit with Snail, the choice of subject matter—fruit as well as another object in which to echo the lighting effects—and the stunning detail are typical of Forster’s best work.
