The Still-Life in the Twentieth Century
AP 2011
Braque’s earliest paintings were in a style mainly influenced by Post-Impressionism, but in 1907 he visited Picasso’s studio and saw Les Demoiselles d’Avignon, Picasso’s visual manifesto for a new mode of painting. Braque and Picasso thereafter worked in tandem and created the art known as Cubism. In his later works, especially those made after World War I, Braque moved away from the monochromatic color schemes of early Cubist paintings in favor of a richer, more vivid palette. He continued, though, to use the same combinations of still-life elements—many of them objects associated with the cafés of Paris—and to explore the visual properties of collage, fake wood-grain effects, and flattened shapes and spaces, all of which are evident in this Still-Life of 1927.
