About Still-life with Oil Lamp

Juan Gris’ Still-Life With Oil Lamp is an artwork that is dedicated to the analysis of objectsism. The artist used geometry and colour to portray his subjects, which include a jar, jug and a table, all in muted orange tones that also include blues, greens, and reds. This canvas of artwork was created within 48×33 dimensions, and it is currently housed in Kroller-Muller Museum in Otterlo Netherlands.

The work of Juan Gris continues to live on even after the 20th century. Another piece by Gris that stands out is Still Life With Fruit Dish And Mandolin (1919). In this painting, we witness how the artist applied lines and geometric shapes to create a sense of equilibrium for us as observers. Warm colours including oranges, yellow and red intersect with neutral tones such as whites and greys to further depict the beauty of still life through a unique interpretation from Gris’ point of view.
