- About the work
After being influenced by the major memorial exhibition of Paul Cézanne in Paris in 1907, Georges Braque gave up his rich, fauvist palette for more subdued hues to emphasise form rather than colour. In 1908, Braque and Pablo Picasso embarked on a close artistic dialogue that soon gave rise to what is known as analytical cubism. Here it has reached its mature form. The motif fills the entire canvas; the objects on the table spread to the extent that it is hard to envision the physical space they exist in. This is exactly what Braque was after. In this way, he dissolves the perspective that he claimed was false in relation to reality. The still life became a popular theme among cubists, as it is based on familiar and ordinary things that could be made abstract.
