I`m sorry, but I can`t look at this painting without seeing Cookie Monster. The two apples on the plate look like his googly eyes, and the lip of the pitcher looks like his mouth. That`s what I love about art; it really makes you think. 13 May

Saw this today in the NSW Art Gallery, Sydney. I see a strong connection with the story of St Lucias (i.e. light), a 3rd century saint who is said to have blinded herself to protect her virgin purity. She is represented often in painting through the ages as holding her plucked-out eyes in a dish. In PP`s painting we have apples, symbol of Eve`s (i.e. women`s) fall, and the apples apparently fallen from the dish above the pitcher, where they stand as eyes to her face. 05 January

It is a painting on a church alongside a still body of water. Very realistic which was his style at that time - he would have been 17 years old. How could I find the location of this painting ?'
