One of Ideo Pantaleoni’s early ‘natura mortas’, this piece is a reflection of a traditional Italian fruit plate. On the white porcelain plate, rests a small cluster of green/white grapes with partial vine intact, an untouched pomegranate, nestling with a ripe Bosc pear, and a second pomegranate sliced in half, presumably with the silver knife lying nearby. Slightly above the cutting implement sits a pair of citrus fruit: a single lime and a lemon. Just beyond, rests a medium-sized yellow onion still wearing its skin. And tying the whole scene together is a classic porcelain kettle standing directly to the left of the fruit plate.
