Jan Fyt's Dead and Beautiful

Not being a fan of still life paintings in general, I never really spend much time looking at them. But these by Jan Fyt (Flemish, 1611–1661) are captivating. I'm not sure exactly what it is I find fascinating, but the subject is as beautiful as a portrait. These images found on the Met Museum online collection database.
