Violin, Glass, Pipe and Anchor (Souvenir of Le Havre)

Pablo Picasso

Pablo Picasso - Violin, Glass, Pipe and Anchor (Souvenir of Le Havre)
Although painted in the spirit of Analytical Cubism, the picture betrays Picasso's changing view: the picture is no longer in several tones of subdued colors and contrasts are becoming more pronounced. There is a new element in the relationship of the world on canvas and reality - to the depicted objects are added language signs. Letters and inscriptions are organically incorporated into the painting and endowed with a specific meaning. Vincenc Kramář bought the picture for his collection in 1913 from the Thannhauser Gallery. Later he commissioned from the architect Pavel Janák a wooden Cubist frame.
