These eggs are all of two hundred and twenty three years old but they shine as if they were just laid! I noticed them from miles away.
I could not find a wikipedia page for Henri-Horace-Roland Delaporte, the man who painted this in 1788. In fact, I found only very little about him online. However, the limited info. does not fail to acknowledge him as one of the finest painters of still-life, especially fruits. So I searched for more of his work. I don’t remember seeing this (below) painting at the Louvre, but just have a look at that milk!
