Week 5: Bowl of Fruit o
This artwork named Bowl of Fruit, which was painted by Henri Fantin-Latour in 1857, is a perfect example of a realism still life piece of artwork. It’s dimensions are 46 x 55.6cm
and was made out of oil paints in a canvas. This piece of artwork best falls under Art that Glorifies Food because of the fact that we are able to see all this fruit on the table and
it’s practically taking up all the entire canvas. Because of all the fruit that is on the table, we are able to understand that this artist was trying to show the different kinds of fruit
with the help of the formal elements that the artist used like the texture and the color of the fruit. Another formal element he used was the shape, all these three elements
allows us to realize and vividly see the different kinds of fruit there is.
The value of the fruit and the shadows allow us to also realize that the are on top of some sort of table due to the fact that the artist used these principals of composition.
