Critical Review

The small edition of Lemons is unique in the larger series of Space Fruit. This composition demonstrates less other-worldliness and a more neutral color palette than the vibrant compositions in the remainder of the series, adding to its rarity. The series Space Fruit began as a collaboration between Warhol and the printmaker Rupert Jasen Smith. The pair photographed fruit with heightened shadow before using overdrawing and color blocking to create the appearance of collage in their screen prints.
