This appetizing array was painted in Albert Francis King
’s signature Trompe l'oeil (“deceive the eye”) still life style, a method in which the artist uses close, detailed observation to faithfully render a three dimensional illusion on a flat surface. From Swiss to suds, King
’s command of realism is mind-bending. But it’s his deftly deceptive treatment of glass that puts his true mastery on display. With fine lining and careful execution of reflecting light, King
skillfully portrays the dynamic translucence, weight, and feel of each piece of glassware. While nearly invisible in some areas of the delicately thin dome of the cloche around the cheese, the glass of the bulbous knob at the top as well as the thick bottlenecks appear notably heftier. And using a hazy amber hue and measured manipulation of refracted light around the beer glass and bottles, King
achieves a cool condensation you can almost feel.
This delightful display of nocturnal nibbles has got us in the mood to hightail it to Munich…or at least bask in the glow of the fridge at night. Whatever makes your merry. Most importantly, as a harbinger of autumn, Oktoberfest is a sign that ‘tis the season of snacking. So whether dirdnl, lederhosen, or plain ol’ sweats, gather your grazing garb and get ready to nosh. It’s time for a Late Night Snack. Prost!
