Teapot, Ginger Jar and Slave Candlestick, 1695, London. / Such still-life paintings in the Dutch manner were new in Britain, but they became very popular. The Dutch-trained artists who settled in London found a ready market for their paintings with luxury objects shown in this realistic way. The Dutch called these studies pronkstilleven, that is, 'showy' still life, from the word pronken meaning 'to show off'.
