ARTmonday: 14 Apple Artworks

Today is Rosh Hashanah, the first day of the Jewish New Year. One of the traditions Jews observe is to dip apples into honey to signify the sweetness of a new year. In celebration of the new year, here are 14 apple artworks.

Included are self portraits by two of my favorite Boston photographers (I don’t think either is Jewish), Japanese sculpture, a young Mick Jagger (not Jewish), and more traditional apple still lifes. Shana Tovah!

And some bonus pieces.
One can’t consider of apple artwork without Rene Magritte.
I saw the Magritte retrospective at the Metropolitan Museum of Art
in 1992; a total treat.

ARTmonday: Women in the Kitchen

Recently a friend posted a story from the Onion about moms spending “a much-needed vacation performing all her usual household chores while in closer proximity to the ocean.” Always nicer to wipe down counters with a view of the ocean, after all. 

The satire seemed a fitting segue to these quirky photographs and paintings of women in kitchens. Many of these images evoke sexy ’50s housewives, Barbie, and Stepford wives, though some are downright spooky.

Here are 12 artworks portraying women in the kitchen.
