Clara Peeters notebook with magnet
Plain paper. 7 x 18 cm. 30 sheets (60 pages).
The limitations imposed by culture on women artists contributed to Clara Peeters's devotion to the still life genre, a genre in which she nevertheless distinguished herself as an excellent painter, as demonstrated by her Still Life with Fish, a Candle, Artichokes, Crab and Prawns (1611), whose artichoke is reproduced in this long notepad which you can fix to metal surfaces thanks to the magnet on its back.
