SYMPHONY OF COLORS I

This is a simple snapshot of a fruit seller's cart of fruits and nuts, and the location is one of the piers serving the hydrofoils running between the Italian mainland and the Island of Capri. The expression, "A symphony of colors," is the way the great painter Vincent van Gogh, in a letter to his brother Théo, described the works of French landscape artist Jules Dupré (1811-1889). Van Gogh's words are also appropriate in describing the still life depicted here.

Regarding Italy's magic Isle of Capri, I had written about it more extensively in a posting in August of last year, King Farouk's Last Abode.
