Still-Life (another one)
At the Pierpont Morgan Library, here are some mss illuminations
Description of MS M.1001 fol. 94r:
Male figure, seated astride pig, onions tucked into belt, raises flask
held in right hand to mouth, spilling contents on himself. He holds
ham under left arm. Label inscribed GLOTONIE identifies him as
Gluttony. Figure within room decorated with patterned hanging.
Winged devil, identified by scroll held in his left hand inscribed
BERICH, indicates figures, representing gluttony, seated at table
laden with vessels, knives, platter with meats, and loaf. Woman holds
head of man vomiting on floor. Other figures reach for food or drink
Gluttony might be a great term to search.
This is another late one but worth looking at because it includes
from Matters of Taste pp 48-49
Maerten Boelema "de Stomme" active 1640-1644
Carved Ham, silver mustard jar and glasses
I've not found it on the web as yet; it's listed as "private
collection" in the book.
Another of his with a ham is A Breakfast Piece
I'll keep looking. Hope this helps
