Meaning & Analysis

Grapes (F. & S. II.195) is one of six prints that compose the Grapes series. Each print in the series depicts a different grape variety and has a unique colour composition and layout. This series marks Warhol’s artistic turn towards the still life genre, as seen in other series such as Flowers and Gems. However, as opposed to depicting the fruits in the most realistic style possible, as is expected of the genre, Warhol subverts artistic convention by privileging his Pop Art aesthetic, abstracting the image through unexpected colours and arrangements.

The print was made using blocks of colour that are superimposed onto the grapes in the background. Hand-drawn lines and shading are used to delineate the shapes of the grapes and leaves. The contrast between the blocks of colour and gestural lines give the print a collage aesthetic in which the colours appear to be pasted on top of each other. Grapes (F. & S. II.195) exemplifies Warhol’s ingenious use of colour and love for creative experimentation.
