Fruit on a Tablecloth with a Fruitdish

Georges Braque
  • Date: 1925; France 
  • Style: Cubism, Expressionism
  • Genre: still life
  • Tag: fruits-and-vegetables, dishware-and-cutlery

The subject matter of this painting commemorates a banquet held in Braque's honor upon returning from the war. Picasso and Gris made headway in Synthetic Cubism, while Braque resumed the development of his own style, still Cubist, but more concentrated on color and texture. Fruit on a Table-cloth with a Fruit Dish shows a table display flattened out in the pictorial plane as Braque had done many times before, but here he replicates the texture of wood and marble, and even shades the fruit.
