In the late 1990s the National Gallery, London commissioned twenty-four artists to produce work in response to the gallery’s collection. Hemingway Never Ate Here was Caulfield’s contribution to the exhibition. The central motif is A Cup of Water and a Rose on a Silver Plate by the seventeenth century painter Fancisco de Zurbaran. The bull’s head, painted from an actual stuffed head that Caulfield hired in London, was included after he visited a bar off the Plaza Mayor in Madrid in 1998 where a similar one was hung.
