A terracotta jug, bread and onions are arranged on a table and seen from a higher viewpoint and against a neutral dark ground. A fine etcher and still-life painter, Constantin studied under Picot and Thomas Couture, exhibiting at the Paris Salon in 1848. In this picture, the red of the radishes and wine and the green of the leaves contrast with the browns used for the onions, the bread, the jug and the bowl.
