Gifted artist Periklis Pantazis, who died prematurely at age 35, worked in Brussels, where he is considered among the pioneers of Impressionism.
In the “”Still life”” with the unripe greenish quince, Pantazis avoids the dark brown colour of academic painting and builds his subject by broad, free brush strokes.
