In Grapes – Berlin, Hartley has focused in on a single still-life element. Bunches of red and green grapes rest in a paper wrapper on a table in the corner of a space.
Hartley created at least five paintings and two lithographs of grapes during this time. The Brooklyn Museum has a lithograph of Grapes, 1923, in its collection.
