Grapes and Pomegranates

Ca. 1920. Oil on canvas. Room A

This still life, in which María Luisa de la Riva shows a basket with several bunches of grapes of different varieties and a number of open pomegranates, is signed in Paris, like her Grapes of Spain. It is a mature work in which she clearly repeats the formula that had brought her international success. Although the painting was awarded a prize, some critics reproached it for poor quality and an illogical composition.
