Object 29 [of 66] – Repro Artichoke painting


Julia had two paintings in the kitchen, hung on the wall near the wall oven. Done by a friend, the paintings combined her love of cats, asparagus and artichokes, and were very visible to a television audience during her last three cooking shows. Many viewers wrote to request copies of the paintings. The Smithsonian's artichoke painting is a reproduction. Julia took the original with her to Santa Barbara.
