Various Varieties of Fruits – Infographic

Various Varieties of Fruits

If there’s one thing that I love in the summer aside from fresh vegetables, it’s fresh fruit.  (And ice cream, and water ice, and salt water taffy, and….well, you get the idea!)  To help satisfy curiosity, if not appetite, the folks and Pop Chart Labs have created a new infographic similar to their Various Variety of Vegetables poster.  See how different fruits are inter-related through both common traits and geographical location.  If you enjoy this, or the vegetables graphic, prints are available at Pop Chart Labs for purchase.  [VIA]

Use the images posted in this feature for writing prompts, warm-up activities, drawing templates or as part of an artwork critique.

1921 — The Farm. Oil on Canvas. Cubism and Primitivism styles. Joan Miró (1893-1983). National Gallery of Art, Washington, DC, USA.

[The Farm] is a kind of inventory of the farmhouse owned by his family since 1911 in the town of Mont-roig del Camp. Miró himself regarded this work as a key in his career, describing it as “a summary of my entire life in the countryside” and “the summary of one period of my work, but also the point of departure for what was to follow.” (Wikipedia)
