Georges Braque - Still Life with Guitar
Still Life with a Guitar 1921 is one of the Braque’s mantelpieces, i.e. still lifes to be placed above the fireplace mantel. The Mantelpieces cycle is one of the most significant undertakings of Braque. In 1918, he followed the pre-war synthetic cubism. However, he remained loyal to his previous painting structure though he loosened it and deprived it of the cubistic principles of strictness. This is also evident in the elaboration of the outlines of colourful areas which catch attention by their grace and subtlety.
