The 17th-century still-life style that defines the Golden Age of Dutch painting is characterized by ornate compositions depicting such exotic and lavish luxuries as silver dishes, tropical fruits and blown-glass chalices. Pronkstilleven, as the genre is known, is on display this fall at the exhibit “In Praise of Painting: Dutch Masterpieces at the Met,” which arrives just in time for our own season of feasting and fetes. Today’s opulent array of objets sets a table as sumptuous as those portrayed by painters of the past.
