These are the famous 'Figues de Caromb', and they were painted on the day of 'fĂȘte des figues' at Caromb. When I bought them the seller at the little artisanal market explained that there would be a huge street party in which all sorts of recipes revolving around the fig including fig couscous would be prepared by the local restaurants. Unfortunately it rained all day.
Mystical like a stained-glass window. The blue is cosmic, deep, metaphysical. This painting is "full of soul" like Morandi's still lifes.
