Still Life with Oysters
My family and I recently visited the Gauguin exhibit at the Kimbell Art Museum in Fort Worth. This painting became a favorite as we asked each other - "What do you notice?"
My husband the cook saw the knife and tablecloth were clean and dry, yet the lemon was split in two. My daughter immediately noted the dead bird on an otherwise pleasant table. The oysters lack a good horseradish sauce, and an apple (not displayed in this pic) is smaller than the lemons.
My son's comment: Gauguin painted the fold wrinkles in the table cloth.
Ha! It goes to show you - it pays not to iron. Consider it fine art, and move on.
