This painting was given to her by Salvador Dalí as a personal gift. The two were close friends and when asking Coco Chanel what she wanted him to paint for her she just answered “wheat”. This is not the only place you’ll spot this symbol of prosperity and wealth in the apartment, you’ll see dried wheat en masse by the fire place, as well as in the form of golden sculptures place aroung the apartment. Also, Coco wanted wheat not only beacuse of what it symbolizes, it also reminded her of her childhood in the countryside. I found this piece beautiful to look at, very calm.
