Pineapple Bud, is a painting by Georgia O’Keeffe, which dates back to 1939. It is an oil on canvas which features a huge close-up of a pineapple bud. Rather than depicting the fruit itself, Georgia O’Keeffe decided to focus just on its bud, and this makes the painting really original in its simplicity. The painting was in fact used in the Dole Company’s ads for its pineapple juices.
Artistic Techniques and Style
Most of Georgie O’Keeffe’s paintings are classified as part of the Precisionism style. This is also referred to as Cubist Realism. The depiction is very realistic, even though it is very simple in nature and in subject. Since the Pineapple Bud painting is an oil on canvas, the use of the colors and the way they correspond with each other is imperative. Georgia O’Keeffe made a really good job of this, since the depiction of the pineapple bud is very vivid.
