Critical Review

Cantaloupes II (F. & S. II.198)is perhaps the most representational of the prints in Warhol’s series Space Fruit. Unlike in other prints of the series, Warhol does not intervene with outlines and drawings, but rather leaves the texture of the flesh to stand for itself. Warhol began the series in 1977 when collaborating with fellow printmaker Rupert Jasen Smith. In this series, Warhol draws on the still-life genre, so common in the art historical canon, but brings it into the modern age, and indeed the future, with his title. Through his abstraction, colour palette, and layering of technique, Warhol offers an object common in our daily life.
