ELLSWORTH KELLY : MANGO
It looks like a majijuana bush but it actually is a mango and it was drawn in 1959 by Ellsworth Kelly, an American painter and sculptor associated with hard-edged painting, color field painting and the minimalist school. His works demonstrate unassuming techniques that emphasize the simplicity of form. Kelly often employs bright colors to enhance his works. I personally think that the dear Kelly is totally overrated and that his works are not assuming at all as his techniques. I can do better as shows the picture below. Anyway this Mango plant went for $ 116,000 on auction in November 2008 in New York city.
The picture below named Ike - en souvenir of whom you know_ was painted by myself in October 2008 and is on sale if anybody is interested .
