The customer has chosen the gold fund for this admirable fruit composition from the Caravaggio oil painted fruit basket. In this faithful reproduction of the original, Silvia Salvadori has achieved the same realistic effects by employing a different technique, she used tempera to egg yolk. The result was of great brightness and effect, particularly visible on the ripples of leaves, on individual fruits and on transparent and almost vitree drops of water. The grapes and every single fruit, in this work take on almost photographic contours. The basket was also painted with amazing detail precision.

Caravaggio only painted one other pure still life, being Still Life with basket Fruit on a Stone Ledge. In this case, he took a romantic approach, showing of luscious, ripe fruit with no signs of imperfection. The Basket of Fruit is different. It seems to be the only Caravaggio painting with such a light background. Silvia Salvadori then decided to give a new light to Caravaggio's painting by inserting a pure gold background in her fruit basket.
