The renowned artwork has been featured on the stamp issue shown here.

Ivan Fromer Khrutsky, 1810-1885, appears to have painted mostly still lifes.  His first known works date from 1832, when he was about 22 years old.  By the time he was 26 years old, he was receiving awards for his works.  And here you and I are, centuries later, conversing about him, considering his work.  Indeed, his work is beautiful.
