More Information

Caulfield drew inspiration for this work from the history of still life painting. Instead of traditional depictions of abundance and painted surfaces that painstaking render texture, however, Caulfield chose a cartoon-like style and spare composition that accord with the pop art aesthetic of the 1960s.
