Back in the day, when European painters began their artistic onslaught, exotic fruits exercised a special magnetism and captured their imagination. Scarcity has always prompted people to crave for those objects that were in short supplies and lemons are shining example. The lure of the lemon juice and also the sour taste of the food was every bit as intriguing as its bright color, with the latter being highlighted in lemon paintings. Even when the fruit became widespread, it still remained a frequent sight in artwork and modern artists dedicate plenty of time to highlighting its beauty.
Perfect for the interiors of cocktail bars as well as restaurants, lemon prints range from artwork focusing exclusively on the fruit, to posters that feature lemons among other citrus. The lemon tree has its special place in paintings and prints of all sorts, while the plant is also grown by regular people. It doesn’t require a lot of space for light and it is a fine addition to both houses and smaller flats.
