Re: [teacherartexchange] fruity artist help!

Look no further than Giuseppe Arcimboldo, a late renaissance painter,
who was known for fantastic portraits based on fruits and vegetables. I
don't know if any strawberries can be found in his work but it would be
worth a look-see. Something that also comes to mind is a children's
book by Audrey Wood entitled The Little Mouse, the Red Ripe Strawberry
and the Big Hungry Bear. The illustrations are exquisite and younger
children , as well as adults, enjoy the humor in the illustrations.
Good luck!

[teacherartexchange] fruity artist help! Hi! I need a featured artist
for our 1st project based on investigating the strawberry! We're going
to represent it in LOTS of different ways. Is there anyone who
draws/paints mainly fruit? I found many diverse strawberry images via
Google image (which I'll compile and share!) but am drawing a blank as
to an artist who corresponds with fruit. Was also thinking of someone
like Chuck Close who did so many different takes on the self portrait,
or Monet who did the haystacks at different times of the day, but am
really looking for someone fresher - fruit-focused or lots of takes on
the same subject. THANK YOU!!! wendy --- To
