Oil on canvas, 56×79 cm + frame 10 cm, Inv. n. 244

Already in the Ojetti collection, it was exhibited at the Eighteenth Century Italian Painting show that, in 1974, from Leningrad then moved to Moscow and Warsaw, like the Arcangelo Resani’s “Dog and basket”.

What is awesome is Magini’s capacity to “play” with objects, moving them from one painting to another with combinations that are always different: it should suffice to compare this painting with other works published in the 1990 monograph. The braids of the onions are identical, the earthenware vessel with the ladle (which passes to the left) is identical, and so on: variations on the same theme, probably at a distance of years, without noticing the passage of time.
