About The Pot of Geraniums

In 1915, Juan Gris painted his famous artwork ‘”A Pot of Geraniums”. It is important to note that this painting should not be confused with Matisse’s earlier 1906 painting Still Life with a Geranium, as the two pieces differ in style and composition. The painting “A Pot of Geraniums” was created in Paris and measures 81 by 60 centimeters. In 2014, an analysis was carried out on the artwork which revealed the presence of dotted textures which had been used by the artist to achieve a pattern visual effect.

Juan Gris’s A Pot of Geraniums has long been celebrated as an example of his use of Cubism in his work, with its sharp lines and vibrant color scheme. The painting has become a fascinating piece for art enthusiasts everywhere and was an influential part of its era.

Not to be forgotten is Juan Gris’ other noteworthy work “The Painter’s Window.” It was created ten years later, in 1925, also applies cubism techniques as one can see in the artwork’s construction using forms overlapping each other. This second piece continues today to make an immense impression upon those who view it and showcases Juan Gris’ skill as an artist like ‘A Pot Of Geraniums’ does.
