Guitar and Still Life on a Guéridon

Georges Braque French

Not on view

A guéridon is a small side table that was popular in France during the court of Louis XIV. Displaying both Cubist and Neoclassical elements, this painting, with its somber tones and tactile surface, is typical of Braque's work when he returned to painting after being seriously injured during World War I.
