This animation was created by Taylor Moon, a Ruskin MFA Art student at Oxford in 2019.

It was inspired by Jan van Kessel's, Decorative Still-Life Composition with a Porcelain Bowl, Fruit and Insects, in the Ashmolean collection.

The same painting features in an Open Arts film, where An Van Camp (Curator of Northern European Art) discusses the practice, purpose and significance of seventeenth century still life paintings.
