Isaac Denies specialized mainly in still lifes with fruit and flowers, as well as in hunting themes. He worked mainly in Amsterdam and Delft.
This painting depicts a still life with a central motif of blushing peaches with a butterfly. The grapes and walnuts are typical for this artist. The scene is framed by foliage and set on the black drapery flowing from the lacquered table.
