About Large reclining nude

The artwork titled “Large Reclining Nude” is a creation by artist Juan Gris, associated with the Cubism art movement. It is a nude painting (nu) measuring 81 by 116 centimeters and currently resides in the Musée des Ursulines de Mâcon, Mâcon, France.

In the artwork, one can observe the distinctive characteristics of Cubism, as the figure of the reclining nude is depicted through a series of geometric shapes and fragmented forms. The muted color palette of grays, whites, and subtle yellows contributes to the abstract nature of the painting, while simultaneously achieving a sense of depth and volume. The artwork effectively demonstrates Cubism’s revolutionary approach to representing reality by breaking it down into abstract forms, challenging the conventional perceptions of space and form.
