"Still Life with Seven Strawberries" by GNAY
It looks as though my “all wine and no fruit” thesis has been refuted yet again. Don’t you just love the Internet? I just googled GNAY + FRUIT + PAINTING and look what I found! In fact the World Wide Web has revealed a cornucopia of early GNAY paintings containing fruit. I have found so many in fact, as the preeminent GNAY expert and scholar, I feel confident in declaring this a “period” in his oeuvre. As I have also found a GNAY depicting a sheath of asparagus, this early GNAY still life with fruit phase, will henceforth be known as his “Produce Period”. Yum yum.
