Shepherdess Holding Plums. By Gerrit van Honthorst - Oil on canvas, 78 x 63.5 cm The lustful overtones in Honthorst’s painting are not to be missed: smiling sweetly the shepherdess offers her ripe plums to her craving shepherd. One comes across such sensually charged fruit symbolism in many contemporary pastoral poems, in which shepherds metaphorically offer shepherdesses fruit, plums, for instance, as a token of their love and desire. #art #artist #classic #classicalart #lagra _art #artistsoninstagram #instaart #instaartwork #artists #painting #paintingsdaily #dailyart #oilpainting #oilart #drawings #sketchbook #likelike #classicart #oiloncanvas #artlover #oilpaints #italianart #conterporaryart #impressionistart #oilportrait #classicalrealism #portraitstudy #artistsoninstagram #instaart #instaartwork #artists #painting #paintingsdaily #dailyart #oilpainting #oilart #drawings t #drawings #heartit #sketchbook #likelike #classicart #oiloncanvas #artlover #oilpaints #italianart #conterporaryart #impressionistart ionistart #arthistory
