About Fruit Dish

The artwork “Fruit Dish,” created by Georges Braque around 1908, is an oil on canvas representing the Cubist movement. The painting measures 54 by 65 centimeters and depicts a still life. This significant piece of art is housed at the Moderna Museet in Stockholm, Sweden, and originated from France.

“Fruit Dish” embodies the distinctive characteristics of Cubism, a revolutionary art movement known for its radical fracturing of objects and perspective. Braque’s painting exhibits a muted color palette and is composed of intersecting planes and geometric forms that both delineate and distort the conventional representation of the still life subject. The work deftly captures the essence of the objects while simultaneously redefining them in a fragmented and abstract manner. By doing so, Braque challenges the viewer’s perception and invites them to consider the interplay of shapes, light, and shadow in the creation of visual reality. The composition is rhythmically coherent, yet it defies traditional expectations of depth and form, reflecting the innovative and influential ideas that propelled Cubism to the forefront of modern art during the early 20th century.
