Ask anything

  • Diane ferrone asked

    What is the blue ribbon with round object?

  • Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen answered

    Dear Diane, this is a pocket watch, with the winding key hanging on the blue ribbon. When you click on the tab 'Discover ALMA' underneath the image on Collectie Boijmans Online, you can find other artworks in our collection with similar pocket watches! All the best, Rianne

More information

This still life shows off a silver-gilt goblet, a silver watch and an overturned tazza (Hansje in de kelder). The glassware, fruits and lobster are also only for the very wealthy. The watch reminds the viewer of the fleeting nature of life, as do the fallen tazza, peeled lemon, and roses ranging from in bud to full bloom.
