Georges Braque’s “Violin and Candlestick” was created in 1910 and is an oil on canvas painting. Braque was one of the co-founders of the Cubism movement, along with Pablo Picasso. This painting is considered to be an example of Analytical Cubism, as it uses disjointed images that create variable viewpoints. The objects in the painting include a violin, fruit bowl, and candlestick, which appear to be the personal belongings of Braque.
The painting has a monochromatic color scheme and various tones and textures that give it an abstract feel. Braque’s still-life paintings focused on different ways of perceiving objects through line, color, and texture. This approach influenced other artists, such as Jim Dine and Wayne Thiebaud. The painting is also famous for its use of subdued and earthy colors, which help in bringing out the concept of analytical cubism.
