Japanese grapes are the object of attention in this painting. Fruit paintings can be seen as a symbol of transcience and ephemerality that can be translated to human life.Physical Description
In a similar style of 1955/1.96, this painting depicts what seems to be grapes instead of blueberries. This piece has the same gold frame with a cloud design and a thinner gold frame closer to the paper. This piece is far less damaged than the other panel.Primary Object Classification Painting Primary Object Typepanel paintingCollection AreaAsianRights
