Still Life with Fish, Emil Carlsen. Early in his career, the Danish-American painter spent six months in Paris, where he studied the still life paintings of Jean Siméon Chardin, apparently to great effect. http://www.linesandcolors.com/
Still Life with a Pewter Flagon and Two Ming Bowls, Jan Jansz Treck. The bowls are an odd color because the artist used a type of smalt (cobalt glass) blue that was not light-fast. In the National Gallery, London.
