“Nature mort, poires, pommes, oranges avec un escargot” is the title of this painting in the Musée des Beaux-Arts, Bordeaux. It has previously been attributed to an 18th century netherlandish artist, but is now thought to have been made during the 19th century in France; the artist remains anonymous .
This fruit still life has a dorsal view of a snail in the foreground. The shell is dextral, but the last whorl is too bloated. There is a trace of a spiral band in the colour pattern, but – if this was modelled after a living specimen – the result does not look very good…
In the uncoloured picture the two main tentacles of the snail are better visible.
