Salvador Dalí’s Fruits

One year after having completed his series of flowers (see Salvador Dalí’s Flowers), in 1969 Dalí completed a similar set of illustrations, mainly inspired by French painter Pierre-Antoine Poiteu.

These, like the flowers, are wonderful paintings which reward repeated viewings. The paintings draw you in with their dynamic humour, and yet you are then drawn both inwards and outwards again as your brain goes into overdrive contemplating each detail and the whole composition of each illustration.
