Two Styles for rendering grapes

Two Styles for rendering Grapes.

This first image is by a 19th century Italian painter.


For contrast here's a 19th century Japanese print in ukiyo-e style. 



The Italian Oil Painting has beautiful rich colors and you can almost taste the grapes.
The Japanese print lacks shadows but still has tones and a sense of depth creating by the curves plus an element of humor.

Both are masterpieces of still life in different ways .
