Classic Art Goes to Fruit by Barbara Dexter
Yes you heard right, classic goes to fruit and fungi. The classics like Van Gogh’s works are now appearing on fruit. Take a stroll through downtown Livingston, NJ and see for yourself.
Van Gogh was thought to have gotten his inspiration from a bible verse in Genesis. Then he dreamed still another dream and told it to his brothers, saying, “Look, I have dreamed another dream. And this time, the sun, the moon and the eleven stars bowed down to me.”Genesis 37:9.”
Pablo Picasso’s “Tete d’une Femme Lisant” (Head of a Woman Reading), 1953. This one is in a fitting place, across the street from the Livingston library.
Edvard Munch’s diary reports this about the paining. “I was walking down the road with two friends when the sun set; suddenly, the sky turned as red as blood. I stopped and leaned against the fence, feeling unspeakably tired. Tongues of fire and blood stretched over the bluish black fjord. My friends went on walking, while I lagged behind, shivering with fear. Then I heard the enormous infinite scream of nature.”
Dali described his work as a hand-painted dream photo.
