Michael Triegel (German, b. 1968), Still Life with Melon and Artichoke, Mixed Media on Masonite Board, 1998, signed and dated 1998 lower left, initialed 'T' lower right, depicting a still life with melons, artichoke and an acorn on a stone surface against a deep black background, with 'Worthington Gallery, Chicago' gallery label on verso titling the work and numbered '77', in a silvered wood frame. Frame size: 18 1/2 in. x 22 1/2 in.

Michael Triegel is a German painter and illustrator belonging to the New Leipzig School. He studied at the Academy of Fine Art Leipzig under Arno Rink in the early 90s. He paints many religious and Christian subjects and is heavily influenced by Renaissance art. Triegel has said of his still life paintings that "Beyond the mere existence of things, my pictures want to address their 'thrownness', which is also why the cold stone slab used as a background is so recurring. I am therefore less concerned with the celebration of sensuality like the Flemish, nor with the moralizing vanitas theme of the Protestant Dutch. In the still lifes, I feel most closely related to the Spanish, especially Zurbaran and Cotan. The physical should be heightened in its effect and refer to the metaphysical." (Schwind, Karl, Michael Triegel: Im Spiegel die Welt, 2004, 105-106) He painted an official portrait of Pope Benedict XVI in 2010. He also completed a commission for a somewhat controversial altar piece for the Naumburg Cathedral, titled “Triegel Meets Cranach,” in 2022. His work can be found in public, religious and private collections across Europe.
