About Fruit Dish, Quotidien du Midi

Georges Braque, a French artist, created the “Fruit Dish, Quotidien du Midi” painting in 1912. It is a part of Synthetic Cubism style and is a still life painting depicting flattened and distorted versions of a glass full of grapes and pears. In the artwork, Braque utilized textures, shapes and composition to create both recognizable symbols and symbolism.

The piece was made with a mixed media approach that involved wallpaper glued to the support combined with charcoal lines. This type of technique allowed him to create depth within the space he worked with. The rough texture from combining media not only added contrast but also became an integral part of the overall artwork that is uniquely identifiable.

“Fruit Dish, Quotidien du Midi” managed to capture important elements during those times by fusing references between art movements which gave it more character. The artwork now resides at Georges Pompidou Center in Paris, France; however reproduction or printings are not authorized or available for this piece.
