Pears

A couple of weeks ago I visited the Degas exhibition (it finishes today) at the NGA with good friend and Godmother to my eldest. After she’d gone home I found a magnet on my fridge with these pears on it. She knew I was admiring the glass ones for sale in the NGA shop. This sculpture, Pear – version 2 is by George Baldessin and it resides in the sculpture garden. Since my glass pear encounter I seem to be seeing pears in all sort of strange places; prints, T-shirts and appliqued on bags just to name a few.
