This brilliant coral-colored silk features an elaborate brocaded pattern consisting of exuberant sprays of flowers in yellow, blue, white, and gold thread joined to bunches of fruit and other ornament woven with silver thread. The ground is enlivened by a damask pattern of more schematic vegetal and geometric ornament that echoes these dominant motifs.

The Cynic Philosopher Crates

Domenico Fetti

This painting shows a man seated on a bench, facing the viewer. He leans forward slightly and his right hand reaches across his body to point toward a group of coins on the ground. He is dressed in tattered clothing and his feet are bare. The bench where he is seated is inscribed with the letters: P. Q. P. C. /T. T. This is an outdoor scene with open sky in the background and some vegetation on a ledge above him, but there are no details to indicate the exact location. Another man is shown in the background at the right, walking hunched over and using a staff. There is a strong contrast between dark and light in this painting. The figure of the walking man and the dark shapes of buildings are outlined against the light backdrop of the sky. A strong warm light, from the left side of the painting, highlights the knees, hand and upper body of the seated man.
