Gooseberry in art

Trying to paint a still life with gooseberry, I was really surprised. It's the first time I paint gooseberry! Actually, quite difficult for depiction but so nice and attractive, gooseberry is a rare subject in world art.
In this post, I collected some paintings with gooseberry I could find.

1. Dutch master Adriaen Coorte.

Adriaen Coorte. Still life of an earthenware bowl of wild strawberries, a bundle of asparagus and sprigs of gooseberry and redcurrants, all on a stone ledge with a pale blue butterfly above. Oil painting, 1689

2. Adriaen Coorte. Still life with asparagus, a spray of gooseberries and a bowl of strawberries. 1698. Oil on canvas. 37 x 44 cm.

3. Adriaen Coorte. Gooseberries on a Table 1701 oil on canvas Cleveland Museum of Art.
