"Still Life with lots of Apples" by GNAY
Well, another GNAY painting with fruit in it has surfaced! Late last night I received a fax from Melbourne. A blog reader and self proclaimed art expert (ha ha ha) sent me this picture that hangs in their National Gallery of Victoria. What a thrill it is for me to see an early GNAY for the first time! And, talk about fruit! That basket is so full one has even fallen out! And, I bet there are even more apples in there that we can’t see! At first sight they appear to be from the “Cox Orange Pipin” strain, which makes sense, as GNAY is known to have one of those in his backyard. Obviously I will have to rethink my GNAY “no-fruit” thesis.
