Snijders specialised in scenes of animals and kitchens, and regularly collaborated with Rubens, who often called on him if he needed live or dead animals, vegetables and fruit inserted in his own paintings. Snyders’s kitchen pieces show his virtuosity: the fur of a hare, juicy grapes, the hard shell of a bright red lobster on the gleaming blue of Chinese porcelain. Nothing is impossible.
