In 1599, Caravaggio painted this Basket of Fruit with oil on canvas. As far inspiration goes, he was asked to paint what was in front of him, and it happened to be a Basket of Fruit. This painting is famous because Caravaggio was able to bring a lifeless arrangement into a living memory (a "still life"). For those who would like to see it in person, you may find this painting at Biblioteca Ambrosiana, Milan.
